These Pumpkin Coasters might just be the quickest and easiest fall project, perfect for a last-minute gift idea or something to help get you into the spirit of fall. When I say they are quick and easy, I am not joking, you could whip up a set in under an hour.
Not only are these Pumpkin Coasters super cute to have on your coffee table, but they are also practical protecting your tables from spills and heat damage.
Confession time! I was a week ahead of myself and almost posted the next Mystery Block of the Month a week early! I only realized on Wednesday night, two days before the video was going to be shared that I had my dates wrong and that now I had no YouTube video for Friday. In a state of panic and knowing I didn’t have much time to work on a pattern and make a million samples, I knew whatever I did had to be super duper quick and easy. So that’s how we got these quick and easy Pumpkin Coasters this week. Phew! But I really like them, I think it worked out, I hope you like them too!
These Pumpkin Coasters are super cute in fall colors and just as cute made in Halloween fabrics – I can’t decide which is cuter!
You could use the same fabric on the front and back, or two different fabrics, making them reversible. An added bonus is that they are fantastic scrap busters! Get the pattern at my Free Pattern Library HERE.
Thread! I forgot to talk about the thread. Anyone that’s been following me for a while knows I am a big fan of using white thread, simply because it always works. But you could have fun with this project using different color threads to highlight the quilted details on the pumpkin.
