This coaster is close to being tasteful. I think the beautiful flower in the center set that tone. You'll see I set that into an oddly paired strip - a floral sewn to a wonderful old flannel shirt. Sometimes it's just fun to take one sewn together strip and just slash it to see what you can insert. I love the fabric on both sides. The back of this coaster is a red Marcia Derse piece. I try to use backs that I'd like to see just as much as the front.
