five by five

I like to make little somethings for the new members at my church.
It's usually a couple of potholders and the church cookbook....
but this is for a young man who doesn't do much cooking.

I had fun piecing all those little 1 1/2" squares!

Little tiny pieces are SO wonderful!

The back of my little coaster did NOT come out as planned.
This is the wrong side of a lovely piece of blue/gold fabric.

When I realized my mistake....
I decided to just GO WITH IT
and avoid the seam ripper.

No one will EVER know.

After all....
the back side will be hiding MOST of the time anyway!!!


  1. love it and how sweet of you to do that. makes me want to dive into my scraps and sew even though I have a sky high pile of things to wrap and send off. LOL

  2. Lovely - and I won't tell if you don't :p

  3. how thoughtful to make little gifts for new members, I would enjoy a gift like that for sure

  4. It looks lovely and I'll bet he will never know that it's the wrong side of the fabric on the back.

  5. Great idea. Not wrong, just unexpected design outcome!

  6. Fabulous use of those tiny squares....

  7. What a lovely thing to do! No, no one will know.

  8. This is such a cute idea for tiny squares.

  9. VEry nice thought. Great Use of tiny scraps. I have found that many fabrics have backs as nice if not nicer than the fronts. Doubles your stash choices.
