Secret Candlemat Swap

Shhhhh... it's a secret.

I'm participating in a Candlemat swap. Lately I've only been doing private swaps, but this public swap has been fun. My partner asked for a candlemat made in earth tones. I loved these colors and ended up making two, one for her and one for me.

This picture of the back shows the machine quilting a little better.
