Could not wait to make it....

Well I was thrilled to receive my subscription copy of Quilt Now in the post today... And ooooooh a freebie to make too!  Pin wheel coasters.... A challenge!! Excellent!!

Here is the magazine... It's issue 15.

I got started straight away... Sorted all the bits and opted to hand stitch.. Well it's was a case of having to hand stitch as I am still not well enough to sit at my sewing machine.

Here is what I did....

Added the backing and filler........ hey presto!! I actually made them! And I think I did a pretty good job seeing as they are hand stitched too.

I found the instructions easy to follow and learnt a lot too.  I mean stitching the squares together wrong side and then cut into 4... Perfect triangles! Awesome! I used a lot of the other freebie gifts from the magazine to help me too, as you can see in my photo.

My mum just popped round and asked me where I bought them from! Ha ha. I to,d her I just made them! She loves them and wants some now! Guess I am going to be busy!!

Onto my next project....

Smiles to you all :)
