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! 🙂

I made my first three coasters yesterday. I’m sure to be making more. I had been thinking of making some red and black ones myself. They are a bit addictive. Thanks for sharing yours the first time and now again.
Jasmine is going to love those pretty coasters. I know I do!!!
Darn it, Yvonne! I just know this is going to be another squirrel visiting!! 😉 Are you using a template? The Hex n More ruler, something else? This just might be the project that busts that Hex n More ruler out of it’s plastic. . . 😉
That wavy black, white, and red print is awesome!! I think I need to check out the tutorial. Happy Thanksgiving.
Yvonne, Both sets of Coasters are done beautifully; the fabric choices for each set work together so perfectly. I admire the way you can pick the perfect fabrics that go together nicely without one or another being overpowered. My go to projects are always a hand embroidered project. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!
Zippers! I’ve sewn dozens of zippers into clothing over the years–but putting one into a pouch–so small, so much fabric in one place–I join you in the chicken camp 🙂 Besides, who wouldn’t love your hexi coasters?
I love these! Thank you for the tutorial!
I was going to suggest pouches and sewing kits, but you are avoiding scary zippers, and I cannot seem to be able to do so!
I do love these coasters.
These are so cute! That Jasmine is just the sweetest. I, like Anja, just love that wavy print. And like Judy, think I’m being sidetracked by a squirrel…I can see Christmas fabric being transformed into some of these!
These are just so cute. I think I’m going to try and make some of these, hoping that I can wrap my head around how to turn them out once you sew them. Right now it doesn’t make sense to me. Also, thanks for the link in your previous hexie coaster post on how to make a template. Definitely need that!
These are great. I need to try them. My go-to are my quilted pouches. I love making them.
These really are on my list of things to do, which never gets any shorter
Alas, Yvonne, I often find that quick gifts always seem to take way more time than I anticipate, turning them into pain-in-the-neck gifts! I hope I can get a little faster on stuff like that! I love the hexie coasters and the placemats, though.
I seriously love my coasters! Panda was telling me just yesterday that each of the boys gets one and I get two. 🙂 I guess you know my go-to gift is a drawstring bag. I have also made hand warmers and neck warmers.
Ooh the red ones are perfect for Jasmine! And the earthy green ones are nice. Eventually I will look up the tutorial for these and make some!
Well you’ve seen my go to gift for this Christmas, the infinity scarves! But I definitely think coasters could be good for a couple of people next year.
