Sew-In Project: February 8th - Easy Ten Minute Table Runner & Coasters

Hi everyone!
Our first Sew-In Project scheduled for 2014 will actually be two projects! You can choose to do either or both projects, and they are completely optional.  Carolyne Stanton, the 1st President of the PMQG (hooray) will be teaching both of these projects on February 8th, and she's given us the following supply lists, so bring your fabric to make a nice matching set for yourself, or some great gifts for someone you know. I might even make some Christmas themed ones. Too early?

Ten Minute Table Runner:
This easy table runner, doesn't take much fabric and is a great project for a beginner or a seasoned sewist.

You will need:
"Theme" print: 1 piece of quilting cotton 10 - 12" wide x WOF (Width Of Fabric = 44")
"Co-ordinating" print: 1 piece of quilting cotton 18" wide x WOF
Matching or contrasting thread for topstitching, depending on the look you are after.

Easy Coasters:
Make these coasters to match your table runner or in completely different fabrics. They work great with wine glasses ;)
HINT:  A Charm pack would work great for this project.

You will need:
(5)   5" to 5 1/2" Squares of coordinating or contrasting fabric for each coaster
(20) 5" to 5 1/2" Squares for a 4 coaster set.

** These projects will sew up pretty quickly, so make sure you bring something else to work on for the rest of your afternoon.  Don't forget your inside shoes, your travel mug and any snacks you may need.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
