Assembly line-style coasters

In September, I stumbled across these lovely panels at my favourite German quilt shop, Patchcom and just had to have them. Thankfully, they went really well with fabric I had bought there the previous year but never got around to using.

So I figured I'd make quickie coasters by sandwiching sections of the panel, machine quilting a detail or two, cutting them into two strips of four sections each, attaching long rows of binding, cutting each strip into four sections and attaching the rest of the binding. Now I'm hand-finishing the individual coasters before spraying them with fabric protector.

There will be eight.
Then it's onto the potholders.
