Four Patch Drink Coasters with Faux Binding

I’m picturing two types of reactions to this project.  The first is from people who think binding is a breeze and are wondering why I’m going to so much trouble.  Why not just bind them like normal?  The second is from people like me who have serious issues with getting binding sewn on to their…

Today is my birthday, so I feel like it’s okay to base this month’s hot pad on one of my favorite things – strawberries.  When they’re in season, I can’t leave them alone.  The summer I was pregnant with my daughter I threw back so many I warned my husband that she might be born…
