The mat will be lovely with a vase of flowers or a candle in the center. Or, hang it on a wall, perhaps with a collection of other small quilts.
You can also give the mat a layer or two of Insul-Bright batting (find it here) for heat proofing and use it under hot dishes.
The little quilt looks like a curved block inside of a circle. But, it’s all an illusion. There’s no curved piecing involved.
The pattern, by Judith Sandstrom, is 15 1/2″ x 15 1/2″.
