Last weekend, my mother and I embarked on some St. Patrick's day sewing. Mom made a table runner and I made a dozen coasters of the for leaf clover variety.
I used four fat quarters for the tops and backing, and Bella Solids jelly roll strips for the binding. Binding is time consuming work, especially when dealing with 48 corners. I miter the corners and usually miter the binding joints as well however, on small items such as coasters, I finish the binding with a simple, straight joint.
The coasters were quilted using a free motion trefoil design. I think these will look great with a mug of green beer!
Happy St. Patrick's day!
Fantastic idea, I love it! The quilting is the perfect finish.
