They’ll Keep Food Warm Longer, Too!
These attractive fabric baskets allow you to pass hot dishes around the table and set them down without needing pot holders or trivets. Plus, food will stay warm longer in one of these insulated baskets.
When the dish comes out of the oven set it in the appropriately sized basket and it’s good to go. Baskets that aren’t in use fold flat for storage.
These are great for family dinners, and for potlucks and other events where you’d take a hot dish. The baskets are also great for storing paperwork, patterns and other items in your office or sewing room.
Choose two coordinating fabrics for each basket. Fat quarters work nicely or use yardage. You’ll find several examples here to get you started.
The finished baskets, designed by Lisa Amundson, can be made in the following sizes:
- Regular Small – 9″ x 9″ x 2″
- Tall Small – 9″ x 9″ x 2 1/4″
- Regular Large – 9″ x 13″ x 2″
- Tall Large – 9″ x 13″ x 2 1/4″
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
