    well the corduroy top is finaly readty to get sandwhiched.

    It has been an experience working with it for a top and definately it will be heavy.

    Will probably just stitch in the ditch but not sure. Any sugestions

    Is the whole thing corduroy??? You are a brave lady! Sorry I don't have any suggestions--stitch in the ditch works for me!

    It sure looks good. Was it like flannel to sew or more like denim? You did a real good job :D

    It is all corduroy. Sewing is a combo a little like flannel but seam areas are like denim to get through.

    All the black corduroy is going up and down and is 21 wale The blue is going side to side and its 11 wale

    It has been a challenge right now without the border/binding its 76x86

    It turned out very pretty! I bet it almost twinkles when you move around it! The wale of the corduroy is kind of an added bonus for those stars.

    I wish I could feel it. It reminds me of the wonderful heavy covers at my grandmother's house. Sunk into a featherbed, pinned down by the covers, it was nearly impossible to get up in the morning. :)

    DH loves a heavy quilt. Was going to do denim but your corduroy idea is much better. Thanks!

    I think I'd take it to a longarm quilter & let her worry about quilting it :shock: but tying it would be cheaper. No way would I try stitching it on a regular machine.

    GREAT QUILT :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Connie, Knowing you have the frame and machine combo to make your work easier, I can't imagine that you would take the time (and back ache) to tie that quilt. I would think your machine would do a good job. Maybe do some special little designs in the centers of the stars???

    It really turned out to be a very pretty quilt. And yes, I bet it twinkles. Knowing how corduroy has a way of changing colors because of the nap, this should make a special illusion depending on how you look at it. Beautiful job! You are always doing great things.

    Keep up the good work.......girlfriend!!
