I am getting much faster at cutting fabric into hexagons to make the 5 Minute Hexi Coasters. This past weekend I made 2 more sets of 6 to gift. When I met Jasmine @Quilt Kisses at Quilt Bliss, she gifted me a lovely drawstring bag with an emergency sewing kit inside. As she loves black, white, and red, I knew exactly what I was going to make for her when I got home!
I had a fantastic blender print of wavy black, white, and red lines that I thought was perfect for the backs and one of the wedges of the coaster. You might also spy some of the newest fabric I picked up with my Gotham Quilts gift certificate, Endearments in Red.
I also made a set of 6 to gift to my brother and his wife for Christmas. These fabrics were selected to coordinate with the quilted placemats that I made for them a year and a half ago. I am out of some of the fabric that was used in the placemats, but I think the coasters should coordinate well enough.
What are your go-to sewing projects when you are looking for quick makes for a gift? I am still staying away from scary zippers, ha! 🙂
