    I was definately supposed to see this quilt! Yesterday afternoon my DD was in her room doing schoolwork (been home for a week because of the blizzard), and all of a sudden she comes into the kitchen in tears. She had been "getting up on my bed" (read taking a run and a jump---she's ten), and now had a four inch horizontal tear across the chest of her warmest winter dress. No fixin' that one. It was a little dissappointing, because she has plenty of room left and of course it takes several hours to make a new one. Then I remembered this quilt,...hey,...time to go check out the thrift stores for a couple of courdoroy shirts!

    I love the fact you made this from scraps that have a family history. Not only does your quilt look great, it seems to be sturdy enough for a rough and tumble little guy.
    I think it will just get softer and softer after many washings, too!

    Thanks Marmalade.

    Is it not strange that I was cutting more corduroy squares today to make at least one lap quilt for my daughter and likely make a queen size for myself. If I have enough, I may make one for each of my sons also. My goal is to use up all of the corduroy that I have accumlated. I did buy some flannel giraffe print for the backing (it was cheap). :shock: I thought the giraffe print would add a little whimsey to the quilts.

    I don't find that strange at all Caroline! I hope you have enough to be able to make quilts for your sons, too!
    I like your whimsical sense with the girafffe flannel. It's those little "twists" that bring out the smiles ....Keep us posted on your progress.

    Love it! I made a rag quilt with corduroy fabric - it was very hard to do with all the seams. This seams easier.

    What kind of batting did you use?

    I used some high loft poly batting that was in my stash. The seams were pressed open and I stitched over the seams with a herringbone stitch with different colors of thread. I then machine quilted it diagonally across the squares. The backing was some plaid flannel from my stash. I still might have enough of the plaid flannel for a lap quilt. The binding was some light weight denim also from the stash.
