Cute fabric coasters

I did a little bit of sewing this weekend
I made some cute coasters here are two of them below
I used pretty Moda French General Pom Pom de Paris squares they are 4"x4" & just perfect for making coasters
You will need 2 x squares of fabric & one piece of quilt batting the same size
Sandwich them together & pin with batting in middle
and good side of fabric facing outwards
"for an extra bit of stiffness include a layer of interfacing next to the batting"
Sew around outside of all four sides to hold all layers in place
Free motion embroider through all three pieces to quilt them together
and use ether bias binding or make your own binding tape to finish off around the outside.

And you will have some cute washable coasters
