Not A Scrap Left Behind

I just couldn't bear to throw away my scraps from the Only These Diamonds For Me quilt.  I usually save them and pop them into another project like an applique, but I wanted to do something specifically for the outdoor area.

I was looking at the size and lo and behold, they were the exact length and width I needed for some quilted coasters.

I am a bit embarrassed to tell you that I had to go and look at my very own tutorial to make them.  I had forgotten the measurements!

Every bit of scraps were used!  Some for the back of the quilt.

and some for these coasters.

I particularly like the plain blue ones.  

There something special about simplicity that just speaks to me sometimes!

Now what to do with the two fat quarter stacks I have in those same fabrics.  I am thinking some throw pillows for the couch and chairs?
