coaster #6: scrappy flower

i can see where my color/fabric selection could have been better--the green leaves are lost against the green background-- but it was so much fun making coaster #6 and i'm excited to make more like this. i found them at the jolly bee. she  started off using a tutorial over at chasing cottons. but jolly bee made them wonderfully scrappy and outlined everything in black thread (where i used blue) as she saw in a book called "Scandinavian Stitches".

i agree with you, jolly bee. these are the happiest coasters ever.
but, you didn't mention--do they work??

this sunkist beverage...very tasty.

ok! they are happy and....they work!
