Christmas Quilt Along - Post #4

Hello Everyone,

Here's the end product........nine Mantel Misfit Mittens.  I was able to cut eleven out of the strip set that I prepared.  Mr. Joe made me a nice little stand out of a wine stave with dowels to hold my mittens.

For the Holidays, I'll put some greenery and lights around the stave holder to illuminate the mittens.  I may make another set for the other side of the mantel.

Once you get the strip set made, the mittens go together very quickly.

If anyone is interested, I'll prepare a tutorial on how to make Misfit Mittens and have it ready by the time I'm hosting the Christmas Quilt Along in May.  Start collecting some misfit fabrics!

Many thanks to Hazel for hosting today.  Also, thank you to Sue for designing the Festive Mystery Quilt.  I didn't have time to work on it today......but I'll get to it my next month!

As always,



  1. What a great idea! Looks so easy to make. Love your stand how cleaver area you!

  2. Simply Genious!!!!

  3. What a good idea. Are the mittens different sizes or is it an optical illusion?

  4. Definitely interested. The graduated heights look neat on the mantle, and your plan of the lights and greens will look great. Thanks for sharing.

  5. They look so wonderful. A tutorial would be great, and please can I borrow Mr Joe for a while to make me a stand?
