Ready to be Stylin' My Next Pot Luck

Over the course of the year, I go to a lot of  'Pot Luck' or 'Bring a Dish to Pass' dinners. Needless to say, I really like to go in style and I think I can do that with my new casserole carrier.

That is actually a pretty big casserole dish, diameter is 9"wide x just over 6" high. It also fits a traditional 9"x13" pan also.

And what a great way to practice free-motion quilting. I followed around all of the flowers and leaves on the cover panel and had a little more fun on the inside panel. I used Aurifil 50wt thread.
Can you see that I quilted 'mm good' on the green strip?
I used Insul-Bright batting (shiny side toward the back or inside) and a second layer of white and warm batting. It made it pretty thick, I think next time I might just use the Insul-Bright.

The outside cover panel is approx. 30" finished and the inside panel is the width of the fabric, approx. 41" finished.

I included an inside "pocket" to put a thin board to help stabilize the casserole dish and to put a hot/cold pack.

This is just a prototype, I think I need to make a couple more to work out some of the 'bugs'. This is also my fourth week in a row with a finish!

Today, I'm linking up with FMQ Project Friday, TGIFF, Link-A-Finish Friday, and Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop
