I’m still more than a little bit in love with the whole geometric trend. It’s such a strong, bold look and can be used in so many different ways. I was recently inspired by these modular coasters, spotted on the Purl Bee website and there’s always a place for new coasters in my home! I wanted to give mine a more autumnal feel, using a mix of rich berry and oranges.I made a few changes from the original coasters, which were stitched up by hand. For the sake of speed and efficiency, I used a zig zag stitch on my machine for all the inside seams. After cutting out felt squares measuring 4.75″ on each side, I then cut smaller squares and triangles and arranged them in position on a piece of white wool felt.
After stitching them all together, I placed a second colorful square on the back and sewed around the entire perimeter with a straight stitch. This creates an extra thickness that I feel the coasters need, but I also love the pop of color! I made each backing square a different color just for fun.To finish, I trimmed up the edges with my 8″ Amplify Mixed Media Shears to give each coaster nice straight edges and even seams, and immediately put them to use!
