25-Patch Oven Mitts

To fashion the patchwork fronts of her stylish oven mitts, assistant art director Elizabeth Stumbo stitched together four 25-Patch blocks and cut two oven mitt shapes from the patchwork. She interlined the oven mitts using layers of cotton batting and heat-resistant batting. The unpieced backs of the mitts show off larger sections of the prints, which are from the Bazaar Style and Bohemian Soul collections by Patricia Bravo of Art Gallery Fabrics.

Assemble Oven Mitt Fronts and Backs


1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together 25 assorted print 2-1/4" squares in five rows. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row. Join rows to make a 25-Patch block. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 9-1/4" square including seam allowances.

2. Repeat Step 1 to make four 25-Patch blocks total.

3. Join 25-Patch blocks in pairs. Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a patchwork square. Press seams in one direction. Referring to Diagram 2, cut one Pattern A and one Pattern A reversed from the patchwork square.

4. Place a yellow print A reversed lining piece wrong side up on your work surface. Lay a cotton batting A piece and an insulated batting B piece next to the lining piece with all thumbs pointing in the same direction. Apply basting spray to all three pieces.

5. Referring to Diagram 3, top wrong side of yellow print A reversed lining piece with cotton batting A piece, basting spray side up. Center insulated batting B piece, basting spray side up, on cotton batting A piece; the insulated piece will be 1/4" smaller all around than cotton batting piece. Top with patchwork A piece, right side up, aligning edges with layered A pieces.

6. Quilt layered pieces as desired to make mitt front. The featured oven mitt is quilted in a diagonal grid with lines intersecting corners of each square in the patchwork.
