After a comment from Ali of Very Berry Handmade about my coasters a little while ago, I'm slipping in a quick additional post this week to explain how I put it together. It's not really a tutorial as such but you can skip this post if you've already guessed how it's done!
So here goes, this is what I did: (the text goes with the photo beneath it)
Cut a piece each of wadding and backing 4" square......
Here's a back view in case you're wondering what it looks like.
I've done all the strip piecing for 8 more since taking these photos - now I've just got to trim them and tackle the binding. :-(
I'd like to know which method you prefer? The traditional double fold or folding the binding in half and attaching it double? And as for the corners, I try something different every time and haven't found my "favourite" way yet!! One thing I'm pleased to have got the hang of is joining the ends of the binding even though I know I didn't do it on this (it was just too small and fiddly).
I hope this makes sense (it did to me) but if not just ask and I'll try to explain better and edit later if necessary.
Bye for now
