Easy Modern Quilt-As-You-Go Scrappy Coasters

These simple coasters make great gifts and they are super fun to make. They are a great scrap buster for using up your fabric scraps after a project or just to make a dent in your existing scrap bin.

Materials Needed

– Quilt batting scraps – Scrap fabric – Backing fabric – Coordinating thread – Sewing machine – Rotary cutter – Chopstick

Step 1: Pick a starting scrap

For these DIY fabric coasters, all you need to start is a scrap of fabric with straight edges for the center of each coaster.

It can be any shape, a triangle, a square, a hexagon, a trapezoid, anything with straight sides.

Step 2: Quilt As You Go adding more Scraps

Whether you are going with a group of coordinating fabrics or going totally random, I find it looks best if you alternate light and dark fabrics where possible.

Find a scrap that is slightly longer than one straight edge of your first scrap and place it right sides together and sew in place along the raw edge with a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Trim off the excess scraps that may be hanging over the edge of your batting square.

Step 3: Trimming
