Free Friday: Summery Citrus Coasters

Happy Friday, everyone!  I can't believe it's Friday again already, but I guess that's summer for you.  It just whooshes by so quickly!  Flowers bloom and are gone, fruit comes in and out of season, hot lazy days soon turn into crisp, busy autumn.  You have to make sure you get out there and enjoy it while we have it!

That's what inspired me with this week's free pattern, one of the best parts about summer; citrus!  Now I realize that most citrus are actually winter fruits, but... lemonade and key lime pie and fresh bright oranges just look so summery! 

As a bonus, these coasters are also perfectly sized to be used as wide mouth mason jar lids!
