Greetings Everyone,

I won a random drawing in the 50 Projects 2013 thread. Alwaysinmyroom send me some amazing fat quarters.  When I saw them I instantly thought kitchen, Oven Mitts, Potholders, Hot Pads.

Here is the first. I love the colors, The pattern I used was:
Is on Craftys, easy to follow and simple. The hardest part was turning the Mitt.

There were a few solids in the mix, and they went wonderfully with the prints.



Here is a closeup of the binding and a look at the freemotion quilting.



Thanks for looking
well and wonderment

Nice work Smiley. The fabric is terrific, very fresh. Good looking quilting, binding too.
It looks like a fairly fitted oven mitt which can be great for a tighter grip when picking things up. I have used looser mitts with good results though, no slipping in the hand. Those are much easier to turn, a little more fabric to work with especially in the thumb. What sort of heat reflective batting did you use? I've found Insulbrite nice and thin and easy to work with.
It looks like you could have clipped the inner thumb curve a bit more for a smoother end result, that might have made turning a bit easier as well. I never under estimate the importance of that part, it's a small step that makes a big difference Smiley.

The little craft store only had some on a bulk roll for the heat resistant batting, it was not so thin. Will look into a different kind next time. I clipped the curves, but the thumb was so hard.  I think I should of clipped and trimmed the seam more there. 

Thanks for the suggestion on a different batting will look for it on line.

You're very welcome. That brand was suggested to me by someone here on Craftster Cheesy.

I love this! The fabric is so bright and green! You did a really good job... Hard to see you had difficulty with the turning!
