quilted Christmas coasters

December 8, 2014 by Angie

This is my second time making quilted coasters. The first time I made a binding for them like large quilted things. They were so tiny that the binding situation was a little ridiculous. This time I tried an inside out sewing method. I prefer the results from this method. Here is a tutorial that explains everything. I did the quilting first on just the top and batting, sewed the back on with right sides facing, turned right side out using a chopstick to get the corners just so, then top stitched around the edge. With a little starch and ironing, everything is crisp, flat, neat, and downright fancy.
