condensation killers

It's getting to be cold drink time and around here that means rings on the table time so I decided I needed to grow up and get some coasters. Okay, make some coasters.

I had gotten this charm pack from reprodepot thinking I could make an easy quilt and then that idea fizzled, so hey coasters it is!

I just stacked the blocks and cut at odd angles and rearranged them.

Stitched 'em up and trimmed the corners.
Turned them right side out
And machine stitched some wavy tops.

Voila. No more furniture rings. Okay, less furniture rings. And can I tell you, toddlers get quite excited about coasters when you present them right.

"It's a seat for your sippy!"

I love the 'seat for your sippy'! Great idea and colour combinations.

Seat for your sippy = awesome! The coasters are very cool looking, and would even make neat-o quilt squares!

Cute! And easy to do - a project of the very best kind.

Those are great. Do you think I'll be able to get babysitters to use them?
