This is the first finish of 2011. A 4.5" coaster, heading for the Tokyo Quilt Festival.
I have joined with Ayumi's group to make a set of coasters for the fabric artist and quilter Suzuko Koseki. I was assigned the letter "u".
My first encounter with Suzuko was through Penny's quilt-as-you-go quilt-along. I enjoyed this qayg technique so much, and purchased her lovely book.
My coaster doesn't use any of Suzuki Koseki's lovely fabric (haven't got a stash - yet). Inspired by her qayg technique I adapted it into building the letter u.
The back is a sweet print for a coaster, I think.
It's a small gift on it's own, but I think it will be lovely as a part of the whole set. Looking forward to hear from Ayumi's about meeting with Suzuko and presenting her the gift.
