quilted coasters

really, i promise
it didn't take me 4 months
to finish this project:
just 4 months wrap, gift and then photograph.

this weekend, in little compton for father's day
gave me the perfect opportunity to snap some photos
of the quilted coasters
i made for my mother-in-law's birthday gift
and, i have to say,
they look just as lovely as i'd imagined they would
in their home by the marsh.

one set for the living room

another for the kitchen/dining room
i was inspired by the coasters in denise schmidt quilts
but mine ended up being totally free hand... for better or worse.
i used a combination of quilting and upholstery weight fabrics
and am now totally obsessed with robert kaufman's quilter's tweeds...
