St. Brigid's Cross Coaster Tutorial
As mentioned last night, here is the tutorial. These coasters were inspired by the shape of St. Brigid’s Cross. I think they look great with some stripes, like this ticking. If you want to bust your scraps, you can always use different prints in one coaster.
Finished coaster size is 4 1/2”
These instructions are for ONE COASTER. You need to repeat for however many coasters you want.
You’ll need: One 2 1/4" x at least 12" of main fabric and one 1 1/4" x at least 12" of contrast fabric (Or four 2 1/4” x 3" of main fabric and four 1 1/4" x 3" of contrast fabric if you’re working with smaller or different pattern scraps.) 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” back fabric 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” of cotton batting
With the right side of the main fabric up and the wrong side of the contrast fabric up, line up the long edges of the fabrics. This is the shortcut. You can sew each 3” piece individually. Sew 1/4" along the long seam. Then iron seam open.
