Bell Pepper Coasters

 Project #1 from the fabulous new book Patchwork Please! is the Bell Pepper Coaster.  This was such fun to make!  And quick, too.  I didn't have much time to sew the day I made these, so I set my kitchen timer for 60 minutes.  I was nearly done with all three when the timer beeped -- hooray!
 I showed them to my girls when they came home from school - and they thought they were butterflies.  But we've been raising caterpillars, lately, so they're always thinking about butterflies.  But I could see how I could easily change this pattern into a butterfly.  I'll add this to our list of summer projects!
