One-Seam Palette Coaster Sewing Tutorial at Nancy Zieman Productions Blog

Celebrate Summer Sewing and stitch a set of Reversible Palette Coasters! This red, white, and blue sewing project is stitched with two fat quarters, Pellon’s ShirTailor Interfacing, and metallic thread! Our reversible drink coasters, or mug rugs, feature an envelope back and a front flat surface — an ideal “palette” for showcasing thread embellishment! The reverse side opens to wrap around the base of a stemmed-glass.

Note From Team Nancy  What is a Palette Coaster? Team NZP named our NEW! Reversible Palette Coasters for the coaster’s front surface, which is an ideal area — or palette — to showcase a variety of fabrics or techniques. Simply feature thread embellishment – as we did here, or choose a beautiful fabric print, fun novelty fabric, or a leftover quilt block. Try a new technique when making your next Palette Coasters! Prior to seaming your coasters together, decorate the front fabric “palette” with ribbons, trims, appliqué, machine embroidery, and/or nearly any embellishments you’d like – you’re the designer!

Approximate finished size: 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″

Note From Team Nancy  Preshrink  fabric by steaming and pressing, and steaming and pressing a second time, and then spray press and starch fabric with June Tailor’s Quilter’s Starch Savvy — press and starch, press and starch.
