My best friend's son is marrying, and his fiance's wedding shower is Sunday. I'm sad about missing the February meeting of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild, but I'm thrilled for my friend and her family. I found an unusual batik, one side is metallic and the other isn't. I'm currently working on quilting this with a metallic thread. The binding and handle straps will be a solid black. And the batting is a thermal batting. The spoon which serves as the handle is one made by my cousin Jerry. And who doesn't love a 9" x 13" pan with its own cover? This casserole carrier will be fabulous!
