So I had some scrap fabric that seemed spot on and I had fun with the different quilting and binding.
Rather than just make them the regular rectangle shape, I thought the tumbler added a smidgen of whimsy that I like - maybe a glass shape? Anyway I meet with my friends tomorrow when I plan to hand them out in a bunch and I may have to explain (they're non sewers) just what they are and what they're for - simplest explanation I can think of is 'fabric coasters', so I hope they get that.
Sometimes just doing a small project, especially one that is for a gift just inspires me. And so, back to the quilts I have in progress - much larger quilting but still satisfying.

Until next time,
They're cute. I like the wonky cut.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sally, good fun.Delete
Nothing like thinking out of the box. Those are way too cute. I explain mug rugs to my non sewing friends this way: they are bigger than a coaster, smaller than a placement, with a bit of room for a treat next to your beverage.ReplyDelete
Thanks Marcy that's a great description, I'll use that next time.Delete
What a cute idea!ReplyDelete
Yes...cute cute cute. How did you do the lettering???ReplyDelete
Hi Valerie, the lettering was actually some fabric with verses on it (not that clever!).Delete
Lovely idea! Did your friends 'get it' that they are coasters? Hope so!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sharon, they did and they appreciated them - isn't that nice!Delete
These are super cute! The verses are a nice touch to a thoughtful gift.ReplyDelete
