2012-37: Candle Mat

Candle Mat Front

This little Candle Mat sitting beneath a candle in a glass bell jar will protect the surface of our dining table.  The red green and gold colors of the metallic fabrics make it festive for the holiday season while the Asian inspired designs make it usable year round.  Having a variety of candle mats allows me to change the look of our dining table whenever inspired by the day, the menu or my choice of dinnerware.  A simple change often lifts my spirit and increases my anticipation of dinner – even when I am the cook!

The mat was quilted with a gold metallic thread in a line dancing pattern that goes on both sides of every one of the seams throughout the block.  The mat measures 12.5 inches across.  The red and gold metallic print binding was applied by machine to the front and hand stitched to the back.
