Candle Mat - sending (3 of 3)

When I first starting blogging, in 2009, I wrote you could find my quilts all over the globe, Peru, France, Spain, Canada. It's not that I am famous quilter by any means, it just that we have friends and family in these countries. Well, I can now add Norway. As not to give away the element of surprise, I won't give out the name and think there are several participates for the swap from Norway.
I had a really good time with my first on line swap. My partner wanted Fall fabrics in oranges, greens and beige's...so this is what I picked for her.
I'm not the best machine quilter so fell back on my old standard of straight lines. I found a great fall color, variegated, thread to use and think it all worked well in the mat. I used some cute little fall buttons in the four corners to add a slight accent.

Using Fabric Sheets for the label, I sewed the final touch on the back.

Sending any additional goodies was not required. However, I have been making some Snappy Bags and thought my partner would like one made from the left over fabric, and as not to waste any fabric, I also made her a pin cushion out of the salvages.

This has been great fun and look forward to another Swap.
To my new found friend in Norway, I hope you enjoy your Candle Mat!!!!
Always quilt with love and passion,
Pam O.
