Assemble Mug Mat
1. Referring to Applique Blocks, steps 1 through 6, make one appliquéd block. Centering design, trim appliquéd block to 4-1/4" square.
2. Layer appliquéd block, batting and backing. Quilt as desired. Designer Kim Diehl hand-quilted around the appliqués, using a big stitch in contrasting thread to emphasize the shapes of the blossoms.
3. Bind with medium or dark print binding strip.
