About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

two in a row coaster tutorial, part 2

For this coaster you’ll need
- five pieces of fabric 5 inch square
- one piece of fabric 4 inch square
Fabric number 5 is the backing fabric, and fabric number 6 is the center fabric.

Press fabric number 1-4 right sides together to make triangles.

Lay the triangles in the four corners on the right side of fabric number 5.

Flip over fabric number 4, so that fabric 1-4 is visible

Pin heavily, stitch and trim. I use pinking shears.

On the wrong side of the stitched and trimmed square, glue or pin fabric number 6 and the square wrong sides together.

Turn and press the square.

Fold the edges and pin them down.

Stitch the edges down, lifting and stitching a bit under the next edge.

Repeat with all four edges, and voila!

If you make a coaster using this tutorial I would love to know.
Thank you.
