January Candle Mat

The last of 12, the January Candle Mat is a flurry of snowflakes. I just had to add a bit of embroidered snowflakes to round out our final FREE candle mat. Made from our Quilter's Candy again, I used Solid-White, Swirls-Patriot Blue, Classic Dot-Cerulean, Solid-Sea Breeze, and Multi Stripe-Tidal Wave.

The quilt is made with twelve blocks; two colorways of six different blocks giving the overall look a very scrappy, yet cohesive feel.

December Candle Mat

Awe, isn't he so cute?! Perfect for the holiday season, this little snowman will bring a joyful cheer to your home. The December Candle Mat is constructed from Quilter's Candy fabric options. Applique, embroidery and half-square-triangles (HST) make up this cheerful project. I'm sure you'll want to make a number of them as gifts for friends and family. Certainly a quick sew, and easily created in a couple of hours. You just need to be careful which way you turn the HSTs.

November Candle Mat

I just love this time of year. It's so full of beautiful colors, and events that bring people together. My favorite activity is decorating for all our special holidays. We had a very long and warm summer this year for the Pacific Northwest, so I was ready for autumn. I thought for our November Candle Mat, a beautiful leaf and acorns in fall colors from our Quilters Candy collection would be more than perfect.

Gifty Galore Chevron Pillow

I decided that I needed deadlines to accomplish some quilting/sewing goals I set for myself, so I signed up for some projects for Gifty Galore. I saw these adorable Chevron pillows in the book Pillow Pop and decided they would look super cute in my house! I selected fabrics that I thought would look good in my family room. I decorated it quite a few years ago now in my “wallpaper phase” and it may not be trendy but I still like it.

October Candle Mat

Happy October! Yep, I know, this October Candle Mat was predictable, right?! But, this little pumpkin guy is so cute with his smiley face and sparkly eyes. He sports a skeleton chin and a pirate hat (stem). The little 3-1/2" blocks along the side are very easy to assemble and it's fusible appliqué. You can really have him constructed in an afternoon!
