Quilted Drink Coasters




Introduction: Quilted Drink Coasters

In this episode of the Crafty Gemini Show I teach you some quilting basics and make a small project out of what you learn. I cover some quilting terminology, what is a pieced quilt, what are quilt blocks, how to make half-square triangle block units using a super easy method where you can make two blocks at once. I also show you how to take two half-square triangle block units and a piece of batting and turn it into a fabric coaster! These pieced fabric coasters are a great beginner project whether you are learning how to sew or learning how to quilt. Anyone can make these. Happy sewing!
