This set of 4 coasters was one of my Christmas makes, a gift for my friend N. Last year I gave her a set of red and white spotted and striped mugs so thought I'd make some coasters to go with them this year.
They are backed with a coarse natural linen and the quilting is fairly minimal. I don't know where I first saw striped fabric used widthways for binding but I love the effect. It was after making these that I decided to make a set of Christmas coasters for us to use up some of the leftover Christmas fabric scraps after making the stockings. It's a great way to utilise smaller scraps of fabric and batting, the binding is fiddly with so many corners but that's the only downside.
