I always enjoy using up every last scrap from a charm pack. I was able to get 64 little 1 1/2 inch squares from the corners of the clamshell cuts for a 8 inch square. Then I had a fat quarter of the floral that I used for a 2 1/2 inch border. This fast and easy tutorial makes a Avalon Candle Mat mint. Finished size is a 12 candle mat.

Isn’t it cute with the Clamshell pillow that I made last week and…..all the scraps from the charm pack are used up. I just cut 2 1/2″ strips from a fat quarter that I had and added a border to the mini blocks. Then I added my backing, batting and quilted it.
I always enjoy a photo of the work before quilting.
A closeup shows that I just did a free motion wiggle stitch over the seams and some stippling in the borders.
The backing and binding were some other pieces I picked up that match perfectly. I thought the colors in my mug looked cute with it….can you imagine how many cookies I could put on this!!
Maybe I’ll skip the cookies and just use it for a centerpiece.
