Quick Christmas Coasters and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  Even though we had another party this weekend (but not at our house), this week I got a tiny bit of sewing done and made some little gifts for a couple of friends.

I pulled all of the fabric for these coasters from my Christmas scraps and sewed them with a double layer of cotton batting for extra absorbency.  I used THIS method, but I opted to use two 4.5" squares of fabric for each instead of piecing the coasters.  Also, I have found since writing the tutorial that the coasters actually absorb a little better if they aren't quilted through.  So, I just stitched around the edges and called them done.

I made two sets of six coasters (each with the same six prints) and they turned out so cute!  They've already been gifted so they can go ahead and get some use during this Christmas season!

Last week's party had so many amazing projects!  Check out this cute one by Sandra at mmm quilts-

Brenda at Songbird Designs linked up this beauty-

And Gretchen's Little Corner shared this scrappy project (with a tutorial!)-

Before we party, I want to let you know that NTT will be taking a break for the next two weeks for Christmas and New Years, and our 24th wedding anniversary is in there too.  We will resume our party on January 4th!

And since it's the last party for 2022, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for participating in Needle and Thread Thursday for another year.  A link party is only as fun as the links shared, so I couldn't keep it going without YOU!  I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and I'll see you again in 2023.

Okay, y'all!  Let's party on!
