Pretty and Practical?

Hi it's July already can you believe it? I've had a busy week but found a bit of time for sewing some fabric coasters. The perfect small project.
I'd been thinking of making some for a while and then last week Jenna of SewHappyGeek posted a brilliant tutorial so I gave it a go. A great way of using the countless scraps I seemed to have collected and a great way to practice a bit of quilting. They didn't need to be perfect and I could say that they are skew-whiff on purpose, just a bit of creativeness :-)
Here's the other side
I'm not sure they will practical but they look pretty. They would make a lovely gift tied up together with a bit of pretty ribbon.

They certainly would make a lovely gift. Just the kind to present to a new lodger in fact. Mmm..!!

So very pretty! I can just see how a bundle of then would be so appreciated. Love the way you've gone for it and not worried about total regularity!

They are so cute :-) (and they definitely look like you intended to sew them that way - they very retro and cool)
