Heart Strings Table Mat Alternative

Here is another way to make the Heart Table Mat that you saw in my last post.  I know a lot of you aren't convinced that you want to try making string blocks, and others of you just don't really like  them.  So here is an alternative to make the Heart Table Mat without making a single string block.

This version uses squares and half square triangles.   It's really quick and easy to put together.

Cut 6 red squares 3 1/2"
Cut 2 background squares 3 1/2"
Make 28 half square triangles that measure 3 1/2" (finish at 3 inches)

Your table mat (or wall hanging) will finish at 18 inches.

Here is the EQ5 drawing.  It's a little easier to see the placement on this diagram.

I hope you're all stitching this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
