Quilted coasters

A dear friend of mine turned 40 this past week and I wanted to make her something special.  Unfortunately when you have a busy toddler - making something special can be a bit of a timing issue. 

So I went for quick and pretty!  I hope she thinks they are special :)


I was inspired by these pretty green coasters from Homemade Ginger.

My friend loves Asian inspired fabrics - so I chose this lovely Alexander Henry fabric from the stash.

The tutorial was easy to follow and they came out great!


One of my favorites is the one with this white crane:


 I also love the one with the geisha girl:


 All they needed was a little bow and they were perfect for my friend.


 I think I will be making more for Christmas gifts!

Beautiful coasters! I love things like that as they are a gift you can keep looking at. I have some someone made me and I think of her everyday when I use them.
