I usually don't post projects because most of what I've been making lately is for swaps, and are therefore posted there, but then I realized that not everyone reads the swap boards, so I'm posting some of my favorite items I've sent over the last year.

This is a set of oven mitts and pot holders I made for 2711 for the 12 Days of Christmas Swap. I used the heat-proof batting in both so they can withstand the heat of hot pans and pots. I machine quilted the pink fabric for the oven mitts and then sewed them on the machine and added the bias tape to the bottom. I'm not 100% happy with them because I made them a little too small originally (I couldn't get my hand through the narrow wrist part) so I had to add the blue fabric (because I was out of the pink! *$#%!). I think they turned out looking alright, but the blue part isn't lined with the batting, so that's a bit disappointing.

The pot holders, on the other hand, I LOVE. This is a "quilt-as-you-go" method that mimiw taught jenicat who in turn taught me. It was SO much fun. The back is all one of the pink fabrics. Each piece is quilted in place and several are top-stitched as well. I wish I had taken a photo of the back to show. I made my aunt placemats for Christmas using the same technique which I will post later.

I wanted to avoid cottage-style or "country kitchen" style fabrics so I went with a pink, turquoise and black with skulls theme. (Can't get much less "country kitchen" than that! Wink)



I wish I had more pictures, but I didn't think to take more as I wasn't planning on posting them at that time. Hope you like them! Grin

Those are cute - I love potholders & things...And you're right, skulls are about as un-country as you can get.  Wink
