Triangle Fold Coaster

sunburst coasters

Thanks for the great response on the Granny’s Style Rag Rug I posted few days ago. Due to the request to come up with a tutorial, I woke up at 4am this morning for you, my dear readers, took step-by-step photos to show you how to fold and sew those tiny triangles and make them into Triangle Fold Coaster :mrgreen: Since I have limited fabric scraps to make a big piece of rag rug, I made a small one instead – a coaster. It’s a rushed job and not like my previous tutorials which would take up a few days to complete. I hope you will think that the quality is good…..

It is now late in the afternoon while I write this post, and I need some super-duper-booster-coffee to keep my eyes ๐Ÿ˜ฏ . Though I am tired and left my craft room in a mess because I need to rush out to work this morning, but, I am happy and contented with what I have done as long as it is related to creative handicraft and handmade, and most importantly I have you to read my creations ๐Ÿ™‚ So, throw more requests if you need one, I will put them in the “Things-To-Do List” and will plan for it ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I was running through the net last night/early this morning which ever 2am sits at trying to find this pattern: when I came across yours. I had to save it to my favorites so I can make these for next Christmas I give away coasters to friends doesn’t cost much and they seem to enjoy it. My friend at work loved the ones this year she wanted the pattern (which sent me on the voyage into the net to find the other pattern. So I ended up sending her this one also. It’s great having another quilting buddy even if you end up giving the same thing to each other they are gonna be different! Thanks for your pattern. I’m sure we both will enjoy making them as gifts to our friends and family’s.
