Winter’s not over yet, so we’re getting the Accuquilt Go! out for some quick and easy projects. One of our favourites is this great little candle mat from Jo’s Country Junction.

Using the Dresden Plate pattern she decided to try a candle mat before braving an entire quilt.

Jo’s instructions say

This was a fun project and went together SUPER fast.  If you want to make one with the rounded blades, you will need 20 blades, 10 of each color.  Make sure you use a SCANT quarter inch seam when sewing the blades together.  A four inch circle is used to cover the hole.If you want to make one with straight edges, you will need 21 blades.    The rounded one finishes at about 12 inches and the straight at about 14.5 inches.   With the straight edged blades you will need to use your 5 inch circle die.  Here’s a quick video you can want if you want to see details on making the Dresden candle mat with both the rounded and straight edges.

Watch a video with step-by-step instructions, and remember if you do finish one, we’d love to see it!
