Materials List

  • Toasty Cotton quilt batting
  • Shield protective interfacing
  • Coordinating fabric scraps
  • Matching thread
  • Basic sewing supplies


Note: This project uses 1/4'' seam allowances.

  1. For center square: Start with two 3'' squares of coordinating fabrics. Cut diagonally in both directions creating four triangles of each fabric. With right sides facing in pin together one triangle from each of the two different fabrics and sew along long edge using a 1/4'' seam allowance. Repeat with rest of triangles creating 4 split squares of fabric.  Sew these squares together creating a pinwheel pattern. Repeat process to create center squares for each coaster.

  2. Cut the other coordinating fabric into 2'' strips and attach to the center square using the log cabin block technique.

  3. Cut backing fabric, Toasty Cotton™ batting and Shield interfacing to the same size as the finished block. Lay the backing on the table right side down. Then the two pieces of batting. Next the shield with the shiny side facing up and lastly the block right side facing up. Stitch around the outer edge.

  4. Pin all layers together and stitch in the ditch of the center square. Bind with solid fabric. Repeat for other coasters.
