Throwback Thursday: Coasters

Thursday, 31 July 2008 21:08 by sara

For sometime now, I've been wanting to make coasters.  I've made the version from BTRS (Halloween themed), but I've been wanting to make some quilted ones like those in Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts.

Given my recent love of all things patchworky, I thought this Criss Cross Coaster tutorial from AllSorts would be a great project this week.

These don't truly use a patchwork technique, so no worrying about lining up all those tiny squares. Yet, they still look a bit like patchwork, and I'll get to use up some fun little pieces of fabric that have no other purpose.

You must check out Jenny's blog, where you can find all of her great ideas and several other tutorials. 

If you want to make some this week, the tutorial is here.  Or, you can browse these offerings from Etsy.

Now, when Mr. Plaid reads this week's Throwback, he will declare coasters dull and predict Win-It Wednesday comments to hit an all time low next week.  I disagree. 

Coasters are crazy fun and so practical. Who doesn't need a whole slew of them?!

Interesting expose. I found myself in a money owing predicament payable to living outside my means a few years ago and managed to acquire of out it through the employ of a liability consolidation specialist. They were highly helpful and helped me to place all my obligations into one loan which I could afford to pay back. This meant I became money owing free in specifically under 5 years. It was a brilliant feeling.

Hi all, This page is first-class and so is how the matter was developped. I like some of the comments as well even though I would rather we all stay on the suject so that to add value to the topic. It will be also encouraging to the one who penned it down if we all could mention it (for many of us who have social accounts such as a reddit, twitter,..). Thanks again.
