We love vintage quilts. It's probably hardwired into the DNA-code somewhere -- Mom is a quilter, so was Grandma.

So we're falling in love with these vintage quilted coasters. They're like little mini-quilts for your coffee table. If we weren't so happy with our Chaba coasters, we'd snap these up quick.

A set of rikrak recycled fabric coasters is $6 on Etsy.

They're made from repurposed vintage fabrics; they're machine washable; and they're iron-able. More than anything, we like the fact that their uniqueness -- so many color and pattern possibilities.

Given our new found success in the world of simple sewing, we wonder if we could make a few of these on our own ...

Probably better to leave it to rikrak.
