Project Instructions

Cut the following fabric using a rotary cutter, acrylic ruler, and self-healing mat:

linen- (1) 4½"x4½" and (2) 2½" x 2½"

Brown and Green - (1 each) 2½" x 2½"

Cotton batting - (1) 4½"x4½".

NOTE: All seam allowances are ¼"

Stitch all of the 2½" squares to make a patchwork 4½" square.

Put the patchwork square and the 4½" linen with wrong sides together. Sandwich the 4½" cotton batting square in the middle of the two fabric squares. Pin in place and stitch all around 4 sides, leaving about a 1½" opening. Clip the corners.

Turn the coaster right-side out. Make sure the corners have nice points. Press with an iron. Top-stitch all around, close to the edges.

Repeat steps above to make the rest of the set.

Tips

For the truest squares, be sure to cut with the grain of your fabric. This will help prevent stretching.
