Fabric Coaster with Drink

Fabric Coaster with DrinkConfession time.  I'm not a perfectionist.   Because of this, I will never consider myself a good quilter.  I love quilts and admire people that do quilting, but I feel like it takes a lot of practice to become really good at it and you have to take your time in cutting everything perfectly.  You want to be careful cutting out your project items anyways, but, between you and me, you can pretty much fix anything so that it'll look decent.   Quilting, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be very forgiving.  You can be off by 1/8th of an inch and it seems to throw off your whole design.  Or maybe I really am a perfectionist, which is why I notice the 1/8th of an inch discrepancy and that's why it drives me nuts after I spent an hour cutting everything out.

Anyways, I hope all that doesn't discourage you from trying these cute, little coasters.  Yes, you need to be careful.  Yes, they can be time consuming.  I only want to be upfront and honest that this project is a little more advance than some of the others and if you've always wanted to try quilting, give this one a whirl.  The end results are worth it.

Another warning, once you get the hang of it, quilting can become addicting.  I know quite a few quilters and they are all quilt addicts.  That may be another reason why I only do it every once in a while.  I can't afford to become addicted to anything.

This pattern is a very basic quilt square and a good one, if you're just introducing yourself to quilting.  You'll find, though, that there are many quilt square patterns out there.  Once you get the general concept, you can make these fabulous coasters as simple or as complex as you wish.
