    Wow - perfect for little round coffee mug rugs! What a great idea! I have some old industrial sized filters that have been sitting in my cupboard for years (pack rat that I am).....see, if I keep things long enough, I WILL use them (fact or fantasy depends on the day :) )

    Coffee filters are also good to cover small bowls in the microwave, to prevent splatters.

    Would you leave the paper in? How would you sew it down?

    I've been using them for over 2 years mainly for a stabilizer when machine applique. They work great and are acid free :-)

    I thought about cutting them into hexagons, and then crazy patching the same way. That way, you could sew them together into a whole quilt of whatever size you needed. Or, hexagon pineapples.
