October Candle Mat

9 comments » fabric, fun, gifty, holiday/seasonal, patterns, Quilt With Us

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!

I made him out of our Quilter’s Candy which works so well for all the candle mats. I chose to do my button hole stitch by hand and I do love the look. It really doesn’t take much time and it’s a great to do the stitching in the evening watching television.

    This guy is perfect for use as mug rugs, too. Won’t he be fun to have smiling up at us while sipping mugs of hot cider?

    Thank you everyone! No, there are no plans to make the candle mat a kit but you can download him for free and I used Quilter’s Candy for him so that is so easily ordered. I believe he only takes 5 or 6 FQs.
