    i've made a number of quilts using corduroy, flannels & denims- yes it make heavy quilts but they are wonderful! it adds wonderful texture & movement to quilts- also good for appliqued animals, flowers, what ever...corduroy is a great fabric to use for any number of items...floor pillows, couch pillows, purses, totes, ...
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    thank you all for the great ideas! I will try the quilt top with flannel back and see how it works. Yes, I'm thinkin it's gonna be heavy, but 'car quilt'! yes! I have made lots of tote bags, but maybe I can make a few more and give them as gifts. And the wheelchair bags! The Veterans Hospital is very near by......I'm sure they could use a few hundred of them!!! hahahaha

    I made a quilt from fine whale, used it with, flannel, fleece and homespuns and denim. Used yellow brick road pattern but did 1/2 seams. It's the favorite quilt in the house. I used batting too because it's cold here. I use everything I have!
