CUT­TING OUT

1 Us­ing the tem­plate as a guide, cut the fab­ric pieces for each sec­tion of the FPP tem­plate, mak­ing sure the pieces will be at least ¼in larger than the sec­tion they will cover, all the way around.

PIEC­ING THE COAST­ERS

2 Fol­low steps 2–5 of the tea cosy pat­tern to FPP the coaster front, piec­ing Sec­tions 1–10 to make a 7in block.

3 Fuse the bat­ting to the wrong side of the FPP block, fol­low­ing the man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions. If you wish to add ap­pliqué or em­broi­der de­tails, do so now, as in step 7– 8 of the tea cosy pat­tern. Susi added ap­pliqué cream, cherry and straw­berry with small scraps of felt and em­broi­dered small sprin­kles (Fig A).

4 Place the FPP coaster front on top of the back­ing fab­ric square, WST. Baste around the edges (Fig B).

5 Pin or clip the bind­ing around the edges and sew to the right side of the coaster, as you would on a quilt. Fold over to the back and hand stitch in place to fin­ish (Fig C).
