Guest #29 Jeni with a Quilted Log cabin Coaster Tutorial

Hello Wantobe Quilters  and Quilters..! I'm Jeni from In Color Order! I'm excited to be here today to share this fun and easy quilted logcabin coaster tutorial with you all! They require only basic sewing skills and I'll walk you right through every step! They make a great housewarming or holiday gift :)


As you're pulling fabrics for this project, decide on one focal fabric. You'll be using it as the center of each coaster and as the backing. I've used batting and basting spray instead of fusible fleece because I like the extra bulk of the batting. It's a little less convenient, but better for the finished product!


Materials
Scraps or fat quarters of 5 different fabrics
Batting scraps
Coordinating or neutral thread
Basting or adhesive spray
Fray check

From focal fabric, cut:
(4) 2.5" squares
(4) 4.5" squares

From each remaining fabrics, cut:
(1) 2.5"x1.5" piece
(2) 3.5"x1.5" piece
(1) 4.5"x1.5" piece

From batting, cut:
(4) 4" squares

Seam Allowance: 1/4"


Cut all your pieces! Once they're all cut, separate into 4 piles, with one of each size, and two 3.5" pieces. Make sure you evenly disperse your prints, one of each for each coaster!


I've created this little diagram to help you visualize steps 1-4, sewing together your coaster top!


1. Now, you're going to start by sewing together one 2.5" square and one 2.5"x1.5" piece. Press seams open.


2. Next, moving clock-wise around the center square, sew on one of the 3.5"x1.5" pieces to the bottom. Press.


3. Sew the other 3.5"x1.5" piece to the next side. Press.


4. Sew the 4.5"x1.5" piece to the final side and press. Now you've got the top of one coaster finished!

5. Repeat steps 1-4 for the remaining three coasters!


6. Grab one of your coaster tops, backing square, and batting square.


7. Spray adhesive to one side of the batting.


8. Arrange batting (adhesive side down), to the wrong side of your backing square.


9. Now place your backing and top right sides together. Pin. Sew around all four edges, leaving at least a 1.5" opening on one side for turning. Back-stitch when you start and finish.


10. Clip the seam allowance in your corners. Turn your coaster right side out, using a dull pencil or turning tool to poke out the corners. Pin the opening closed.


11. Stitching very close to the edge, top stitch all the way around your coaster, closing the opening. Back-stitch at start and finish.


12. Now it's time to quilt! You don't need a fancy foot or anything, for this simple quilting, your regular machine foot is fine. Simply back-stitch at the beginning and end of your quilting lines. Take advantage of your needle-down function to make it easier!


I used a variety of quilting designs for my coasters: shadow quilting (1/4" on either side of each seam), boxy swirl, random diagonal lines and diagonal center crossing.

13. Now trim all those little threads, and fray check your back-stitches for extra security! :)

Enjoy!

  130. Oh, I'm SEW GLAD I get your posts in email - that way, I can save posts like these in my folder for later, when I get ready to go sew! This looks uber easy & what a great way to use up little scraps!

    I just <3 that little white wire dress form you used in the picture - where on earth did you find that??

    I'm a (VERY) novice quilter (just like you, only not nearly so talented!), sponsored by SoCalGal, and I'm getting ready to go follow Jeni. I ask you, tho, with all these great blogs to read now, how are we gonna have any sewing time left? :) Just kidding - they are soooo inspirational (not to mention, educational!!)

    Thanks for hosting such a fabulous campaign!
