Do the Math


I’ve been working on the treats for the Team Captain Boxes.

22 teams = 22 Team Captains.
4 coasters per team captain = 88 coasters.
1 top block per coaster + 1 back block per coaster = 176 squares.
4 tiny blocks per coaster = 352 tiny squares.
1 absorbent middle per coaster = 88 absorbent squares.
I cut out 616 squares.


88 coasters waiting for the final seam and flip.

That’s also 528 seams (6 per coaster) and a lot of ironing.

And some cat hair completely free of charge.


Sorry about that.

The tutorial for these coasters can be found here!

There is also $124 from pattern sales and a very generous donation (thank you, Lisa – I can’t find your email address anywhere) for prizes! Remember, all the proceeds from pattern sales until September 30 will be used for Dish Rag Tag!

    I don’t think I’ve seen a picture of Lucy from the front before. She has really beautiful markings!

    You are such a busy lady…really don’t know where you find all this time and energy…

    Loved the kitty comment 🙂 Somehow it is charming when it is your cat. When it is my daughter’s cat, I just can’t seem to find the humor.

    How sweet of you to make little gifts for the team captains! You are amazing!

    That’s a lot of squares! How sweet of you to do all of those coasters. 🙂

    You should charge for the kitty hair. LOL
