I'm planning on sewing some oven mitts and pot holders for some upcoming weddings, what should I use inside them to make them nice and thick so my friends don't burn their handsies? And is quilting cotton/fat quarters ok to use or is there some ancient and unbreakable rule against using such materials for pot holders and oven mitts?

I often use a double layer of "warm and Natural" quilt batting. I also think quilters cotton is fine. Polyester or poly blends aren't so good because the poly can melt.

If you want to be extra careful you could use the silvery material that ironing board covers are made of on 1 side.

I second all natural fibers throughout, cotton being the least expensive. My gramma has some potholders made of wool, they are quite nice, but would be a bit pricey to replicate.

There is a product called Insul-Brite.  I buy it by the yard at Hancock's.  They keep theirs near the quilt batting.  It is a thermal lining used to keep things hot or cold.

or if you are cheap like me  you can use layers of thermal shirts or long johns, flannel shirts  any of the above or a combination of flannel/ thermal and the cotton batting.  you can also use essential oils that make tehm scented when you touch the hot pans.
