A Simple Tutorial for Mitten Mat

Hope the following will be helpful for those who e-mailed me they wanted to make a "Mitten Mat".
You need ...49... 2½'' squaresSew squares in rows of 7 squares to form the center of the mat. ( you will have 7 rows with 7 squares)Cut a 6" wide border to fit all around the center mat ....

14½ inches for the side 25½ inches for the top and bottom Trace 6 hearts and 6 mitten template to the "two-way" fusible pellon
Iron mittens and hearts on the fabric
Iron hearts on the mittens Layout the mittens on the 6"border making certain to reverse one of the same mitten in the pair. Sew a "Blanket stitch" all around the mittens and hearts
Join mittens with a "Stem stitch". I used "Pearl Cotton" thread but two strands of embroidery floss will work also.
Sandwich, and quilt as desired.
Bind with a 2¼ inch wide binding
I "Free Motion" Quilted mine

Finished size 25½ x 25½ inches.

I would love to see your finished project....
