I was inspired this week by Erin @ http://mummyquilts.blogspot.com/ and her oven mitts. I am trying to use up the fabric on hand and not create any more UFO's but was a little bored with my current projects......while browsing my blog list I came upon Erin's tutorial and tada here is my new set of oven mitts, coasters and mug rug. I was really inspired!!! And the best part no UFO's!!!! I FMQ the mitts with Chrysanthemum pattern that I saw on Rachel's blog, Stiched In Color. One side is solid with FMQing and the other is QAYG strips. Then straight quilting added making a diamond pattern. (Shown in picture down below)
I cut up the scraps and made them into improv coasters!!
The mitts and coasters are going to my daughter and the mug rug for my husband. The good thing about the insul-bright is it keeps the condensation from going through to the surface of the table. The fabric and batting hold the moisture and your furniture doesn't get damaged.
