Scrappy Modern Quilt-As-You-Go 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 used:

– Quilt batting scraps – Scrap fabric – Backing fabric – Coordinating thread

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.

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.

Step 2: Quilt As You Go adding more Scraps

Use your regular piecing stitch length for this not the larger quilting stitch length. Then flip that scrap over so the right side is facing up and finger press along the seam.

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