    Just finished a "drag around quilt" for my great grandson's 2nd birthday. I used corduroy fabrics from his great great grandmother's old skirts and leftover corduroy fabrics from when I made them. The backing is an Andover flannel fabric I purchased in 1987. I did not buy anything new for this quilt. It is not a "work of art" just a utility quilt designed for hard use. Finished size is 45" x 60". The seams were pressed flat and I used a herringbone stitch and stitched in the ditch to reinforce the seams. I then machine quilted diagonally across the squares. I just might make one for my bed since if the quilt is kid proof it might be dog proof.

    Terrific! I like that idea and the price is fab. I'm thinking a good cover for my dog beds.

    It is very rich looking. the first pic makes it look like velveteen. I like the simple grid quilting.

    Oh man would I love to snuggle under that today!! It looks so warm and cozy. Lovely quilt and an instant heirloom ... pre-worn by Grandma and re-made by a Great Grandma.

    Curious ... with the weight of the corduroy and the flanel, did you even both to use batting, and if so what?

    Give your machine innards a good cleaning several times during the sewing and machine quilting process. The corduroy creates a lot of lint. With the next one I do I will use polyester thread in both the bobbin and needle. I used several colors and thread types and the cotton theads created more lint also.
