Ever since we moved to North Carolina we have become acquainted with this thing called condensation. I never understood why people had coasters, or better yet.. actually used them. Seriously, condensation is not a problem in Utah.Well, after six months of using napkins, paper towels, or placemats to keep our drinks from leaving water rings on my table, I finally made some coasters. And I must say, I Love Them! Perfect in practically every way. And they took me less than an hour to complete (all four of them). I did the suggested quilting pattern on these and I really enjoyed it. I might have to give it a try on a larger quilt sometime.I got the pattern from this book, but if you don't have it you can also get the pattern online for free here.
