I stitched these recently. While the raspberries and cherries are eye-catching, what I truly love about these designs are the borders. In fact, I selected these designs for the borders. :) They were A LOT of work - I even stitched the white bits in the blue border - but the end results are well worth it.
I have 2 more coasters to stitch to complete the set. I haven't decided on the final designs yet but they'll most likely be fruits or berries to keep with the theme.
Let me show you the reverse side of the coasters...
I always try to keep the back as neat as possible even though they are usually never looked at. It's mainly for my personal satisfaction and pride. :)
