Table mats

Table mats are almost finished. But I have to sew the binding on at the back by hand, because one and a half to make all four done. I’m in a “bad” situation right now. Sitting here in our cabin and have no more thread to finish up. Tomorrow we are going to the birthday party and the table mats are the present, I have also planed that my niece should have some coasters too.

Step one is done.

Step two is to make a cut and a turn. Then sew together and add to more stripes.

Quilt and put on binding and the table mats are done.

On Sølvis blog she have some coasters that she made a few days ago. Today, I have done the same. They are very simple and quick to make. I have seen these as round pieces before, but I liked very much when they were square. I used square 4.5 "* 4.5".
