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!

Reversible Palette Coaster Sewing Tutorial

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.

To Make One Reversible Palette Coaster:

  • Press two coordinating 5″ fabric squares in half, creating 2-1/2″ x 5″ folded fabric rectangles.

  • Layer thread-embellished square to one 5″ coordinating fabric square, with wrong sides together and thread-embellished square facing up. Position two 2-1/2″ x 5″ fold fabric rectangles over thread-embellished square – with folded edges meeting at middle, and raw edges aligning to outer edges.

    Great coasters! I will be making them to match my folded hot pads.

    Using the wine glass tucked into the coaster, I like that you can pick the glass up and move it with the coaster coming along.

    What fun these coasters would be for the wine lovers I know.

    I’ve made the coasters before using 5″ squares and the pattern for the “Patriotic Hot Pad” (leaving out the batting). I’ll give this version a try because I’ve found that certain size stemware is hard to slip into the coaster, so perhaps having half the fabric for the upper piece may make it easier to attach the coaster to the stemware.

    Cute and functional! The palette coasters are my kind of project this summer. Thanks, SiS!

    Will be making several of these coasters in different fabrics so each of the quests can have one and keep track of their drink. May even let them take them home with them if they choose.
