I've quilted before (oven mitts and potholders), but never actually pieced a quilt. Here is my very first pieced itty-bitty quilt, in the form of another potholder!


I'm pretty pleased with it, and even more impressed at full-scale quilters (though I did know it was a lot of work). Here are the quilted-but-not-a-quilt oven mitts that I made to match. The whole thing was a Christmas present for my mom.

Oh my God... I must be losing it.  I really thought from the thumbnail that this was Stevie Wonder on a quilt.

Cute job!  Did you use that silver stuff inside the potholders?  I tried that once and it wasn't heat-proof enough.

Lol! I don't see the Stevie Wonder, though I wish I did. I didn't use the silver stuff. I've done oven mitts before, and (like these ones), used real cotton batting, 2 layers of it. Works well!

So, three years later, I searched my own name to try to find a post I made, this link came up, and I once again clicked on the thumbnail thinking this was a Stevie Wonder quilt.  Obviously, that is what you have made here.  Smiley
