Santa kit - #5 of 365

Last post with Christmas crafts, I swear!

A few years ago, I was given a kit for a quilted Santa candle mat. For one reason or another, I just never got around to making it. I decided this season was the time. I opened up the box, all set to go, read the instructions, and BAM - crafting block. I didn't not understand the instructions at all. Bummer.

The Happy Hollow Designs kit included the fabric, accessories, and Fusible Quick Grid.

So I took the kit back East with me for Christmas to have my quilting-expert mother decipher the instructions. Once it was told to me in English, it clicked.
I came home and New Year's weekend, got to work. It was much easier than the instructions made it sound. The fusible grid doesn't make sewing blocks together easier, but it does make it a bit faster.
