Penny Rug Coasters by Mary Lachman - Quilting Arts Holiday
Run to your favorite book retailer to find the new issue of Quilting Arts Holiday
On page 35 you will find my pattern for Penny Rug Coasters. I developed this idea when I was asked to teach a workshop at a local art center. I wanted participants to use recycled/upcycled wool to create a make-and-take in the afternoon workshop.
These coasters are a simple design that you can stitch up easily in a spare hour. Just gather some cast off wool (I used clothing scraps that had been felted/shrunken using hot water in the washing machine), scissors and embroidery floss and get started. Use my pattern as is, or use it as a reference and create your own design.
You can order a copy online through Quilting Arts at the Interweave Store or at your favorite book retailer.
