Really big coasters, ahem, centerpieces

This turned out to be quite a weekend for sewing, which was really good for two reasons: (1) I have a lot of my sewing to do list right now and (2) it looks like I might not get to do much sewing for the next few days (if you're not sure why, check out this post). Anyway, among other things, I was finally able to finish the centerpieces for my sister's upcoming wedding!
I was really happy with the way they turned out. There were 25 of them, and I used three different teal patterns for the fronts, with a solid teal on the back. The lining was a cotton flannel.
They're essentially really big coasters, which is just what she wanted.
They'll be in the middle of the tables with a vintage mason jar of flowers on top, similar to this (only with flowers, of course, not Sharpies, and the jars are blue):
But you get the picture. :)
