Sew Kitschy January Block

I decided to join in and do the Sew Kitschy Sew Along with Kristy at Quiet Play. It's a paper pieced block of the month that is kitchen themed! It will make a lovely wall hanging for my dream kitchen someday.

Quiet Play

This month's block is the oven mitt block -- available for free for a limited time on Craftsy! (You can also purchase all of the blocks in one shot if you so desire -- but this girl likes FREE!)

I decided that my color scheme was going to be primary colors, rather than red and aqua. It's a little bit more my style -- and let's face it -- I have a lot of scraps in those colors currently! Here's my finished oven mitt block!

I pieced the thumb a little differently so that I could eliminate one of the pieces, but I don't think you can tell that in this picture.

Linking up with everyone else participating in Sew Kitschy this month!!


  1. What fun happy colors! I love the background :)

  2. Ha! Great minds think alike! They are super colours together aren't they - I'm loving seeing what everyone else has chosen :)

  3. cute! love the yellow medallion of the potholder : )

  4. I like your color choices. Thanks for your encouraging words about paper piecing.

  5. I love your colours. Great job with the first block!

  6. I just downloaded and printed the pattern today. You have used cute fabric. I am going to have to get busy. I have not done much paper piecing but thought this looked fun.

  7. I really just want that mixer... I might sign up for them all though. After all, free is free, right?

  8. Fab block - I think your primary colour choices will make for a great wallhanging!
