LeeAnn is celebrating National Corduroy Day. How fun is that? She sent A funky piece of Corduroy to inspire/Challenge the Rebels group, and So I've been staring at this waiting to decide what I wanted to make with it... I am fighting the urge to go buy more Corduroy...
I only have PINK and RED here... What a combo that would make! Hey Ya never know!
Did you know there is even a CLUB for corduroy lovers?
I've been a fan of Corduroy quilts for ages... My FAVORITE quilt growing up was RED corduroy with Indian cotton... It was our SICK blanket when I was a child. If we were sick and home from school, we got to snuggle in that quilt... My daughter now has it on her bed... It's so soft, and I've had to repair the Indian cotton several times... It's her favorite now. ;-)
Since that quilt is about 40 years old, one of the first quilts I made when I started quilting seriously, 4 years or so ago, was this quilt, ''CHICKEN SOUP GET WELL SOON.'' Tonya had a ''House, Home, and Pantry'' challenge at the time, and I knew right away I wanted to make a NEW ''SICK'' quilt... And I also backed it with RED corduroy... I started hand quilting it. bu tit was insane to attempt, so I machine quilted it, and it comes out every time someone is sick... Nothing like being snuggled in Healing thoughts!
So I need to decide if I want to use all corduroy or mix fabrics for my project with the lovely green print... I hope to have something by 11-11-11... I better get cracking! Even better, I'd like to have something to bring when I seethe rebels in November... Think I better run to good will now!
Have a fabulous day!
And YES! I got TWO of my three machine's back! Wahoo! I'm off to sew!
