Quilted Casserole Carrier

I was Magnolia Quiltworks again, and I spied this awesome kit! A quilted casserole carrier or cozy. Well, it just reached out and grabbed me! I might like one for myself, but I have two daughters that work in offices, and they are always cooking and bringing things to work. Here is a pic with the casserole carrier, and with the left over scraps, I made a matching hotpad. 
 Here it is, opened with an old casserole dish I have.plans to buy a new square casserole dish with a lid to put in it. I think it'll make a great Christmas gift! It has insulbrite as batting to keep things nice and toasty! You just set your casserole dish in the middle, overlap the rings on the side, and pull the handle up through the middle of the rings. Kewl, isn't it?
 Another view of the carrier. And yes, I need to vaccum the rug by my sewing machine! (I've been busy sewing and quilting!)
 And here's a close up of the machine quilting. I tried out my Machingers quilting gloves. They really help! It was much easier to control my quilting with them, they have just the right amount of grip. I give them a definite thumbs up!
 And a final close up of the matching hotpad made with the scraps. Now give me an honest opinion. Do you think the Casserole Carrier with a new casserole dish would make a nice Christmas gift?
