Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Pretty Cool Coasters from A Pretty Cool Life

I love all the projects Cheryl shares over at a pretty cool life and the minute she posted this one about quilted coasters, I knew it would be the perfect gift for my Seester who just recently moved into a new home!

I was able to make these using less than a fat quarter each for both the tops and bottoms and I used two coordinating fabrics. I totally forgot to take a picture of the bottom side, but you can slightly see here in this stack of coasters that it was a solid darker purple. And while I am giving mine as a birthday gift, they would make both the perfect housewarming or hostess gift too!
Happy Monday!
