Another Coiled Fabric Coaster - Practice Makes Perfect!

So, I made my second coaster today. It was easier the second time. I actually reversed the stitch length and width and like how it came out better. Also, I used blue thread which goes with the pattern instead of the background; so it accents the blueberries well. So, I learned to use a thread color that matches the pattern and not the background. I measured the cording today and figure that one coaster takes about 7.5 feet of length. I think that I will make two more coasters with this fabric to get some more practice before I start the bowls. We'll see ... I really want to make a bowl ;)
