Scrap busting coasters

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. Malka Dubrawsky's book 'Fresh Quilting'. What are you most proud of? Making the bias binding - I've bound lots of quilts but never with bias. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't cut up yardage for these -it's amazing how little a scrap can be and still be used.

Q&A with CanadianQuilter

CCG asked:
Love this idea! Very creative & beautiful! (I'm a fellow Canuck) :)

Thanks and great to 'meet' you. Anywhere near Winnipeg?
Sharon Emilson asked:
I made something similar for Christmas for my friends. I first bought mugs and then made the coasters (or mug rugs as they were called in the pattern I used) to match the colors in the mugs.
CanadianQuilter answered:
Great idea Sharon - that's a great gift idea. Maybe a package or two of hot chocolate mix and some cookies would be great too!

I really like these and think they would also look awesome in Batik scraps. I can see this on my desk at work. Would you please share the directions/pattern? green4mee@aol.com. Thank you kindly.
CanadianQuilter answered:
Hi there, Glad you like the coasters. My short version instructions are at the top but if you want the full meal deal with photos etc, try and get ahold of Malka Dubrawsky's book 'Fresh Design'. I actually borrowed it from the library. Good luck and have fun!

Your coasters are so unique!! I have never sewed with bias binding yet. I love your coasters. The colors great and even your mug is cute.
