So I wasn't able to finish that rag quilt over the weekend like I had high hopes for. However, I did get some sewing therapy in by making these little buggers. :) I love quick and satisfying projects like this. I actually felt giddy to have completed all 4 patchwork coasters before my son woke from his nap...I kept looking over at him thinking, Really? Should I keep sewing?
Instead, I admired the coasters and treated myself with some afternoon coffee accompanied with sour gummy bunnies. :) Happy early Easter to me.
I know this next picture is totally in your face, but look how pretty they look! They tasted delectable too ;) I had to capture the sour gummy bunnies before they all ended up in my tummy.
Anyway, I made the coasters using scraps from my latest Moda Bake Shop tutorial which will now post on March 20th. Here is a tutorial for the patchwork coasters if you're interested. The fabric line I used is called Hello Luscious by Basic Grey for Moda.
I gotta say that the coloring of these seasonal candies inspire me to craft (wow, that sounds like an excuse). Well...I'm off to the store to buy more! I'm on the hunt for speckled jelly beans this time. Go treat yourself to something sweet!
