Coasting Away

Earlier in the week I did some more scrap weaving.  On Thursday morning when I discovered my gym's pool was closed for repairs I went back home and stitched the rows together and then did the free motion quilting on it.  Yesterday I cut the large piece into 4 separate pieces and made some coasters.  I have one of these on my desk at work and I absolutely love looking at it every day.  It brightens my day . . . I know, it's the small things.  Anyhoo, here are a couple of pictures.

 The two coasters at the top of the picture already have the free motion quilting.  The two coasters at the bottom are in queue waiting their turns!
This is a great way to use up all of the extra bobbin thread from various other projects.  I think I was able to finish off three or four bobbins; hence the change in colors on the back.  I think they turned out nicely though.
