30's Coaster Set

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I used the quilt-as-you-go method, which simplified the construction process. I applied almost-solid binding in the usual method, which created a crisp finish. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't let your scrap bag overflow! Use up those leftover bits of fabric to create handmade gifts or needed items for yourself. You'll feel thrifty and productive, in the tradition of previous generations of crafty women :)

What you will need

  • 1930's reproduction cotton quilting fabric
  • cotton batting

Thanks for the inspiration! I'm going to do this for my adult children for Christmas! Now I have to decide whether I'll do it holiday themed, or in their family room colors!

Sounds like fun. I know your children will appreciate your effort and the coasters!
