    DD knot quilt

    DD is a fan of free! She was given a bag of fabric and she fell in love with a large piece of flowered pin wale corduroy. Said wouldn't this be nice in a quilt? So for Christmas, I went to local quilt shop (now out of business) and picked some more fabric out to go with the corduroy. Then I showed her pictures of some quilts that I'd downloaded from the board. She liked the one that pamesue shared with us called Josephine's Knot. Pam was nice enough to share her pattern with me. This quilt is what I came up with. Corduroy and cotton with a fleece backing. It measures abt 58"x64". Quilting is stitch near the ditch and echo inside the knot. Fun to make and my DD loved it.

    I Googled some other pictures of Josepine's Knot quilts and it's amazing what the colors you chose did for this pattern. I absolutely love it! And who doesn't like corduroy? I'm sure your DD loves it too!

    Well, I love it, too! And it would look great hanging over the back of my couch, especially since I have the same couch in my living room as the one in the picture. Wonderful job.

    Great job! Sometimes the 'simplist' turn out to be the best choice - especially when you're working with cord and heavier fabrics.
    When life gives you scraps, make quilts!
