Winter Mittens

This is the second quilt block for the "Have a Jolly Little Christmas" quilt along!

All the details for the "Have a Jolly Little Christmas" quilt along are this page.

Winter Mittens is a 12" quilt block.

Made using traditional piecing methods.

Sew Fresh Quilts – Winter Mittens

Finished size of block is 12” x 12”

Fabric Requirements
Single Block
3/8 yard
Dark Mitten
1/4 yard
Light  Mitten
1/8 yard

Read through entire instructions before beginning.  Press all seams open as you go.

STOP: Stitch, Trim, Open & Press. To perform the STOP method, align a square (A) or rectangle (C) on the corner of the unit (B) with right sides facing together. Draw a diagonal line and sew along this diagonal line. Trim a ¼” seam. Finger press the seam open and then press with a hot iron. Pressing the seams open to reduce bulk is recommended.

Single Block
6 @ 1.5” squares
2 @ 2.5” x 3.5”
2 @ 2.5” x 4.5”
2 @ 4.5” x 6.5”
2 @ 2.5” x 3.5”
2 @ 4.5” x 6.5”
2 @ 2.5” x 4.5”

Step 1: Use the STOP method to add the White (C) rectangle and (A) square on the Dark Mitten (B) rectangle. Make one facing left and one facing right.

Step 2: Use the STOP method to add the White (A) squares on the corners of the Dark Mitten (D) rectangles. Make two units.

Step 3: Along with the White (D) and (B) and Light Mitten (C) rectangles, arrange and sew the units together to complete the block. Block should measure 12.5” square.

Here is my Winter Mittens block.

I can see these on a bag to hold ski boots, parkas, hats and naturally, warm mittens. Love the STOP way to do the corners.

Love your mittens block! I feel I need to make a whole quilt of these. What a great fabric stash buster - and a great Christmas/winter quilt at the end! Thank You, Lorna!

This is a great scrap/stash buster. I also decided to use my various scraps of solid white for the blocks although they won't all be the same color.

I really like this block! I am going to try to make this and the ornaments block into pillows for my sister's new house. She will love them!

Very cute. I'm glad the first two blocks are fairly easy. I hope to get caught up this week.
