Quilty Box Challenge - Cute Coaster Project

I received my August Quilty Box last week and I was so excited by the cool gear inside!

 This box included the book Sweet Tweets by Erin Cox, which is a super cute quilting box filled with raw-edge appliqued birds that are thread sketched with black thread to give them a unique appearance.

This box also included thread, yarn, a crochet hook, precut 5" squares of fabric, and batting...so I instantly thought of creating a cute coaster for my table. See how I did it in this video:



I did have to use French Fuse, Lite Steam-a-Seam 2, and black embroidery thread in addition to the materials in the Quilty Box. I have so much of this gear laying around that I'm feeling really tempted to make a whole set of cute apple coasters for the table!

This project only took around 2 hours to complete, and that was because I had to film myself making it. I really enjoyed combining so many different techniques and teaching crochet. Do you feel inspired to give crochet a try now?

Definitely check out Quilty Box if you'd like to receive a box of cool gear each month and have the challenge to make something fun with it. Time to get quilty!

Let's go quilt,
