Hi! Tutorial for coasters and mug rugs is ready. When I made these coasters I realized that even it’s so small project, it has all the same basics as a big quilt. I took lots of photos and now I hope that you find this tutorial helpful. If you haven’t made any quilt yet, but would like to try, I hope this little patchwork inspires you to start!
This time I have made the tutorial so that you can upload or print it. Because this is my first time using this method, I would love to hear your opinions. All the feedback is welcome – if there is anything you think should be explained better or any mistakes, please let me know.
I made these coasters with small patchwork block. Squares are 2″ x 2 “. There is white around and the backing is white. Binding is double foulded quilt binding.
First coasters I made, where with raw edge applique. I had made the ‘Butterflies’ quilt and it gave me idea to use that theme also for coasters.
There is endles way to make these tiny quilts! Fabrics, prints, colours, binding, quilting … all these change the look!
I made the tutorial with the patchwork block, but it’s very easy to make also something with raw edge applique. Just take a piece of fabric, cut any picture or shapes you like, and stitch them around as you like.
If you are interested about tutorial for raw edge applique, please let me know and I shall make that, too.
Enjoy making mini quilts and coasters! If you make some, I would love to see them!
Thank you so much Jane! You make so beautiful jewelries and cards – there is just not enough time for everything. As I wanted to try make jewelries … if you ever want to try patchwork I’m happy to help you. x Teje
I love reading your blog. You make wonderful projects & are kind enough to share the details. Thank you. Butterlies quilt is so viberant, it looks so beautiful. I might just be able to make some mini quilts/coasters in time for Christmas.
The mini quilt coasters are adorable and I am going to make some. If I like how mine turn out, I may make some for Christmas presents. I love reading your posts and I thank you for all the tutorials you have posted. Kiss your fur-babies for me. They are beautiful, and I know they give you a lot of love. I do not have any, but my daughter has a beautiful black Lab that I call my grand puppy…8-)
