I always enjoy using up every last scrap from a charm pack or any of my quilt fabrics as they aren't cheap.
I recently shared my Clamshell Pillow tutorial that was made with a charm pack. I was able to get 64 little 1½- inch squares from the leftovers of the clamshell cuts and made a little 8-inch square.
This fast and easy tutorial makes an Avalon Candle Mat mint. The finished size is a 12-inch square candle mat.
I also had a fat quarter of the red floral print and I used that for a 2½-inch border.
Then I added my backing, batting and quilted it.
I just cut 2 ½" strips from another fat quarter that I had and added the binding using my machine binding tutorial.
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 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.
Be sure to look at my other AccuQuilt tutorials!
