Pieced Centre String Block Coasters

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Pieced Centre String Block Coasters Link to website or photo www.kayeprince.com/2010/08/tutorial-pieced-centre-string-block.html What are you most proud of? The fact that I still use the one I made for the tutorial everyday (over a year later) and it still looks exactly the same as the original pictures ;) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just like with the original block instructions - be adventurous with fabric selections! Also don't be afraid to try out new and "scary" quilting techniques on these little guys - they're great for that!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • batting
  • thread
