This set of 4 Christmas coasters comes with a handy holder, all constructed in the hoop. The holder is stipple quilted and can serve as a small hotpad when not used for holding the coasters. The center design is appliqued, the pieced sides are done as part of your embroidery process, using the stitch and flip method. Each coaster is padded and has a small amount of in the hoop quilting stitches in each corner. Topstitching the coasters and holder is done on the sewing machine, but is not essential. The coasters and holder make great Christmas stocking stuffers as well as hostess gifts. For the 5×7 hoops (coasters fit the 4×4 hoop, but the holder requires a 5×7 hoop.)
