Friday Coaster Finish

Well, almost. Going to be gone most of Friday, so I wanted to get this up early. I will try to update, but just as sure as I promise, the day will be nuts-o!

All but the purple coasters are finished. My hope is to do them Friday evening. Just stitch & flip, quilting & closing left. Then I will have four cute sets of six rainbow coasters. My plan was that people only had to remember their color to know which glass or cup was theirs!

One set is for a secret Potholders Pass Partner, the other three sets will be tucked away for various Christmas gifts.

Above is what is left on my cutting table. The purple bin is full of ROY G. BIV strips that should join nicely with some scrap gray and sewing themed scraps for some mug rug love. Yup, I am thinking Christmas goodies! And just so you know I am honest, I was going to make myself a set of rainbow coasters. That is what the blocks on the right are. At the last minute I chose to save them back for a wall hanging.

The little white milk glass cradle is holding some small scraps for a ticker tape quilt. Maybe also a Christmas gift!

Am I the only one that loves seeing the colors in my little trash bin? Having a hard time throwing such sun-shiny goodness away!

Also, many appologies for the terrible pictures.  (Not that mine are ever that great anyhow!)  But my computer is still in rehab.  Ipod blogging...

I will link this to Sew & Tell in the morning. Be sure to visit all the other lovely finishes by using the updated button on the side bar.  Amylouwho has had some trouble with her domain.   Everyone please be sure to update her links to keep up with the fabulousness on her blog.




  1. Your glass or lucite trash container intrigues me, where did you get it, if I may ask ?~! The way the scraps pile up in colors is way neat. Like you I would have trouble tossing that.

    Remember lamp kits that could be filled with shells—how about filling it with “coaster scraps” instead ?~! Oh my, I feel an idea percolating. Happy near weekend.

  2. I LOVE your coasters! I like your plan of people having their own color, very clever! your sewing table is nicely laid out with projects, I still want to do a ticker tape quilt too :) add another to the list of to do,s right?!! ;)

  3. Love your coasters! And yes, I often admire the colours in my bin!!

  4. LOVE these coasters. I'm such a sucker for rainbows. It's so hard to throw away such beautiful color! I'm still looking for a good blogger ap myself. My husband found a camera adapter for the Ipad although I like the laptop. I hope your computer comes home soon.

  5. Those coasters will make awesome gifts! Sooo pretty! :o)

  6. Love the rainbow coasters, so pretty and such a great gift idea! I too like the look of my little trash bin with all the lovely little scraps and threads.-)
