Corduroy Appreciation Day 111111

It's Corduroy Appreciation Day 11-11-11. Date resembles Corduroy Wales! I have made several Corduroy quilts, and this is a favorite. Made in 1984. It's well used, much loved. Has 3 different size wales. 52" x 74" with  8" blocks. The backing is a twin sheet that I folded over. If you haven't already, check out the other Corduroy Quilts at Nifty Quilts.





Posting a picture of the Corduroy bag (belt pouch) for my daughters Renaissance costume. Made this August 2010.


Well, the zipper is a magical thing from the future, but nice to have.

That's a lovely corduroy quilt. What I like even better, though, are your "crumby" stars in the previous post! Love what you've got going on there. :- )

Love the quilt! I think corduroy looks so cosy after a few washings.

I love the colors in this quilt. You must have had a challenge to keep the pieces from creeping away from you as you were piecing them. The blocks came out perfectly. My corduroy loved to "travel" as I was sewing, but in my case, it didn't matter too much.

Your much loved quilt is a beautiful!

Ooo, nice cozy corduroy quilt! It seems to have held up well. Love the cord pouch with the "magic" zipper! LOL

I agree with Magpie Sue - love your star blocks in the previous post! Warning: Crumb blocks are very addicting!
