Betcha Can't Make Just One!

Thank you to everyone--quilt makers, historians, cheer leaders and viewers--for making Corduroy Appreciation Day so much fun!  I loved seeing the many creations in corduroy, from the old and well-loved to the new and innovative.

I was so inspired by you all, I couldn't wait to make another one!  My sister-in-law, Bonnie, visited this weekend.  We took one afternoon and built this quilt for her to take home.  Fast and fun!


We started with two blocks--one she had made, and one I had made--from the scraps of my 11-11-11 quilt. 


Then we just started adding strips, round and round.  



Three hours later... Ta-da!  The final piece is about 65" x 50".



  And only a handful of scraps leftover!

I love it, and in just a short amount of time, how wonderful for you to collaborate with your sil. It looks so rich in corduroy.

What a beautiful quilt. The corduroy seems to give the colors extra depth and saturation.

I've read that art can't be made by a group or a collaboration. Not true!! Read GROUP GENIUS by Keith Sawyer for more reasons why this isn't so. Then start collaborating.

I can't believe how the quilt changed as each border was added. Great job!!

Kathy said...

Terrific quilt and a fitting encore! Save the wales, indeed.

Love it! I keep noticing that wonderful things happen when you just "do it", and don't think too much. Thanks for sharing.
