Free Tutorial - Pinwheel Coasters Scrap Piece Project by Janette

Here's a fun little way to productively down-size your scrap bin a little. These adorable coasters are fast and easy to make, and work well as gifts or to expand your own stash of coasters. This project comes to us from Sandy Maxfield of Sandy Star Designs and was created by her friend, Janette, who put together a wonderful tutorial for you! More from Janette:

"SPPs (Scrap Piece Projects) are small, easy, and quick projects to use some of those leftover pieces of favorite fabrics from quilt projects. SPPs can have practical uses, be design touches around the home, be fun activities you can do with a youth learning to sew, and are excellent gifts for those “just a little something for you” occasions.

"Fabric coasters are ideal for soaking up those sweating cold drink glasses and for protecting furnishings from hot beverage mugs. Larger sizes can be great for use under glass candles, flower vases and small potted plants on tables. The simple binding technique is used to make the corners as flat as possible. The pinwheel design is cheerful and hints motion. It’s one of the basic quilt block designs, and with a little trick, you can learn to make the center point flat."
