1. Cut two 91⁄2"x 12" rectangles each from the main fabric, lining fabric and batting.
2. Place one lining fabric rectangle wrong side up on your work surface. Place one batting rectangle on the lining. Place one main fabric rectangle right side up on the batting. Pin around the edges. Repeat with the remaining rectangles.
3. To machine quilt each rectangle, mark vertical lines 11⁄2" apart; stitch. Mark horizontal lines 11⁄2" apart; stitch to form a grid (A). Repeat to quilt the second rectangle.
4. Photocopy the oven mitt pattern on page 79. Place the pattern on one quilted rectangle, and trace around the edges. Turn over the pattern and trace it on the second rectangle (B). Cut out the patterns.
Hang It Up
Use leftover rickrack to create a hanging loop.
5. Right sides together, stitch around the mitt using a 1⁄4" seam, leaving the lower edge free. Clip the inner thumb and around the curves, being careful not to cut through the stitching (C).
6. Turn up the lower edge 1⁄4"; press. Turn up the edge 1⁄4" again; press. Stitch (D).
7. Turn the mitt right side out. Cut a length of rickrack long enough to fit around the lower edge, plus 1⁄2" extra (approximately 12").
8. Pin the rickrack around the lower edge, tucking under the raw ends. Stitch the rickrack in place (E).
