Finish Table Mat
1. Referring to Diagram 3, arrange six penny units in a circle; place remaining penny unit in center of circle. Using a white chalk pencil, mark dots on penny unit edges where they touch other penny units.
2. Flip one penny unit atop an adjacent penny unit, aligning dots on edges. Using black perle cotton, tack-stitch penny units together at marked dots. (Designer Lisa Bongean hides the thread tails inside the textured wool layers.) Repeat to join remaining penny units at each marked dot.
3. Using a pressing cloth, steam-press joined penny units to complete table mat.
