Drink coasters/wine glass coasters

I have a set of 4 drink coasters/wine glass coasters that somebody made and gave to me as a thank you gift from serving on a board of directors.  I wish I could remember who that was!  Anyway, I bring them out in the fall since they were made with fall fabrics.  This year, I decided that I would make some more for different seasons. 

Here are the pattern directions:


6 each 5” squares of  fabric (2 for the bottom and 4 for the top in two shades)
1 each 5” square of lightweight batting.
Fold 4 squares of fabric in half and press. They should be rectangles, 5” L x 2-1/2” W.

Layer as follows:
 Bottom fabric for the inside, right side facing down
 Bottom fabric that will show on the outside, right side facing up

All 4 fabrics that have been folded in half, overlapping like a closed cardboard box, with the raw edges on the outside.

around the outside edge in ¼” seam, and sew diagonally at each corner a few times, then trim corners

Turn right sides out and press.

To make a coordinating set of 4, increase the amounts of fabric and batting 
by four.

I hope you find the time to make this quick set of coasters, and perhaps give them to someone that you know1
