Small World Baby Quilt

It's so funny how now that I have a new baby and the kids are home from school for the summer, when I have so very little free time, I have my sewing motivation back.  Even though I haven't been able to sew very much, I have been able to squeeze in a little this week while the kids have been at camp in the morning.

This is actually exactly like a quilt that I made for Studio E that I will be sharing next month, only the colors are completely different, but the great thing about a quilt like this is that different colors make a completely different quilt.

The colors are pulled from this Small World corduroy print which I am in LOVE with.  It is so snuggly and I love the texture of the corduroy.  The quilt top is made with Kona cotton.

I don't know if the front is a plaid or a gingham or what, but it is fun to make.

I have used corduroy for a quilt back before (see here and here), but this is the first time I have used a Cloud9 corduroy and I was impressed.  It is very soft and the colors are vivid.  When I use corduroy I treat it just like a flannel and prewash it first and it handles pretty similarly.

This quilt is now listed in my shop.  
Finished size: 34" x 46"

  4. I like the idea of a corduroy back--I don't think I've ever seen a quilt finished that way other than your blog. It's on my list to try.

  5. Super cute and I'm pleased you got some time to sew! ;-) Good to know about the corduroy...had never even considered it in a quilt.

  6. Love the colors. When I was a kid families used old clothes and all types of fabrics for the backs of their quilts. One of our neighbors took her husband's Sunday church suit and used the fabric for a quilt..he was not a happy camper..but she said it was the only way he would get a new suit..lol. I had a pair of corduroy pants that were so soft that I hated it when summer came because they were too warm to wear..so as a quilt backing..it will be a wonderfully warm and comfy quilt..Great Idea.

  7. I've wondered if corduroy was OK for a quilt, and now I know! This little quilt turned out super cute. I especially like the little squares that result in the intersection after quilting.
