Mum's Advent Calendar 12, Days Left 13

Christmas Coaster Tutorial

Cut out 2 squares of Christmas fabric and one square of batting - mine was a bit thick but squashed down with some persuasion. Put right sides of fabric together with the batting on top. Starting on one side sew round all sides leaving a small gap on the first side for turning.

Cut the corners and turn right sides out.

Hand sew the turning hole closed with small slip stitches.

Quilt the top by sewing consecutive squares.

Put your favourite mug on top, containing your drink of choice.

Hot lemon for me please.

The tree is there - look very closely.


  1. 4th picture? I think I see a small bit. Love the coaster. I'll have to try this when I have some free time.

  2. The trees are in the material. I'll have to try this-looks good.

  3. Oh and I also see a bit of tree in the 4th picture.

  4. Love the coaster, although I was a bit worried at picture three. I thought your cup might fall off (silly me, it wasn't finished) found the tree. I found yesterdays but it was a flying visit.

  5. Thank you Mum,that looks very pretty. I will try it when I've finished my bag. I need some more coasters, mine are looking a bit shabby.

  6. That's lovely, and I'm very impressed by your perfect corners - mine always go wonky when I try things like this. :)

  7. Lovely, and I love the mug too. Found the tree.

  8. Simple, sweet, and lovley. Your quilting is so nice, my squares would be all over the place!

  9. Great tutorial, I think I will have a go at these - guess who bought some Christmas fabric today?
