Noel Mini Quilt/Mat Tutorial

Here is a super quick tutorial for those of you who have bought 'Sew Very Christmas' pattern set and wanted to make the mini quilt with the 'Noel' and 'Candy Tree' patterns.
1. Make 1 set of Noel letters and 4 candy trees following the pattern instructions.  Place a tree under each letter and join-the width of the letters and the trees are the same.  Join each pair of letters/trees together to make the centre of the mini.
2. Add sashing.  I added background solid sashing in grey starting at the sides- 2 strips each measuring 2" x 5 1/2", and then 2 strips across the top and bottom each measuring 2" x 11 1/2".
3. Add a further sashing border in a colour print.  Add the side strips first, 2" x 8 1/2" and then the top and bottom strips each measuring 2' x 14 1/2".

4. Make a quilt sandwich with batting and background fabric cut and inch larger than your mini quitl top.  Spray baste/ pin or sew baste layers together.  Quilt as desired.
5. Add a single layer binding- see my tutorial here for binding and here for mitred corners.
Your mini is complete!  We would love to see your Sew-Ichigo project makes, you can add them to our Flickr group.
