Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to the “No Ring November” blog hop! A big “Thank You!” to our quilting friend, Carla, for organizing the event. This is going to be fun!
Drink coasters were originally invented in Germany by Friedrich Horn, around 1880. The original coasters were made of decorated cardboard and were intended to hold a decanter that “coasted” around the table, allowing dinner guests to serve their cold drinks and protecting the table top from unsightly rings. “Prost!” Let’s raise a glass to the lowly coaster, protector of our tables!
Susan has had lots of fun creating coasters for Autumn. Here’s the new coaster set, intended to protect her antique dining table when the family gathers for Thanksgiving dinner:
And here’s a closer look at the four new coasters:
We showed you this coordinating set of four coasters earlier this fall, and we love how they can be mixed and matched with the Thanksgiving set:
UPDATE: Congratulations to Denise H, winner of our giveaway! We hope that you’ll enjoy the “Pumpkin” coaster pattern.
