Fresh off the press!!! I’m excited to share my new pattern for a very handy item – a cake and casserole carrier. I made one for myself many years ago and after numerous requests, have recently made it into a pattern to share with others.
It is an easy to make pattern for a very practical item. If you make this for yourself, you will discover that this carrier will be one of your favorite items to use to transport hot dishes or cakes to your next picnic or social event.
The pattern includes 2 versions of the carrier and potholders. Instructions are included for 2 types of edge finishes, a bias trim edge as shown in the previous pictures and a serged edge finish as shown below.
It’s also a great gift idea that will be used over and over again. This pattern will quickly become one of your favorites and if you can’t find a pre-quilted fabric in the kitchen colors you want, you can simply make your own quilted fabric to use. What a great way to practice your free motion quilting.
This is also a great project to use a binder attachment, if you have one for your machine. I was able to make the models you see in the pictures using Bernina’s Binder Attachment #88 and it worked great.The pattern is currently available at Etsy and is also available locally in Boise at the Quilt Crossing.
I will be teaching a class using this pattern on Tuesday, June 12th at the Quilt Crossing, which should be a lot of fun. I need to caution you, this pattern can be addictive! Happy Sewing…Jane
