Tutorial Trial Thursday


Hey Guys!

Is it STILL Thursday? Technically it is…anyway!  Today’s trial comes from Chasing Cotton’s Pop Flower Coaster.  If you get a chance go check out her blog ….very cute!  Let me say…I wanted to practice some appliqué only because I am in the process of planning my entry for Project Quilting. Let’s see the results:

  • How long did it take?  It took me about an hour to complete.
  • Was it easy to follow? It was easy to follow but my “coaster” came out more like a mug rug, which I don’t mind.
  • Do you have any tips?  I really had a hard time following the circle.  This will be an area I will have to work at but it you can do …go on with Ya Bad Self!
  • Would you make it again?  Yes, I will!  I have to, only because this trial did not produce the best results.  Practice makes perfect, on the other hand….I think I would even put these pretty flowers on a quilt!  Wouldn’t that be cute?

Heres some pictures for you!


Here is a closer look at my …circle?

This is the back….this whole project was made of scraps and charm squares I got from a charm swap in December.  Fabric well used!


Okay guys!  That is all for now.  Until next time, Sew Pretty!
