To Quilt Oven Mitts or Not

stitcheasy2003February 1, 2011

Hello

I notice most of the patterns on the web say to quilt the layers tog. I saw one that said just sew them tog.with a zigzag st and another one says optional to quilt layers.

Has anyone made oven mitts WITHOUT quilting them? Without washing the fabric? Did the mitts stayed tog.?

What is best to do TO QUILT OVEN MITTS OR NOT? Reasons to quilt them?

Thank you B.

I think all the commercially made mitts that I have seen have been quilted. If I were making these, I think I would quilt them too. You can quilt the fabrics together and then cut out the mitts - at least, that is how I would do it. I have often made "pre-quilted" fabric for projects....works just fine.
