Thanks guys!  I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, but I don't know that I would have chosen to use corduroy if it hadn't been given to me.  I still have fuzzballs all over the place!

Brilliant!!!  Shocked  I can't believe it's so tiny!  I would've gone cross-eyes after just a couple hours.

Yea!  Now I've finished the quilt made from 4" squares of corduroy.  I found a chunk of black corduroy that I used to do a border, so now the quilt is 42".  And I used almost all of the corduroy and the backing fabric.  I pieced some batting to make do.  But I didn't have the drive to make my own binding this time, so I ended up buying some.  But five bucks for a blanket is great!



Another project finished!

texscrapper -- those all look so well made.  And such sweet gifts.

I got a project finished this month that actually fits a couple of the themes!  One was rainbow colors, and the other was something about how small of a scrap are you willing to keep.  So I cut up all the corduroy scraps I had into either 6" or 4" squares and threw out the rest.  And last night (this morning really) I finished binding the 6" block quilt.  I wish I could have made it look nice without hand stitching the binding, but it had to be done.  It's about 42" square all together.



I alternated the directions of the wale.  And I tried to get a light/dark checkerboard effect and mostly succeeded. 



I've also sewn all the 4" blocks together for a quilt top, but that came out to just 31" square and I have no idea what to do with something so small.  I don't think corduroy is quite right for a baby blanket.

What a great start!  And I'm sure your skills will grow right along with the girls.

They're lovely.  It's good to start sewing when the kids are young, because they are much less picky about their clothes and your skills grow with them.  By the time your daughter needs a prom dress you should be able to handle it with no problem.  Smiley

Such a lucky friend.

I'd like to know what the tute is that you found for the binding, because I'm stuck at that point on a quilt I just made.  I started it on my machine, and it just looked so lame.  I really don't want to do it by hand, but I know I'm gonna' hafta'.  So if you'd point me in that direction I'd be grateful.

You are amazing!  I used to can a lot, but I've lost the drive.  When I have bushels of pears sitting in my kitchen waiting to be bottled, just finishing becomes a priority and all the fun flies out the window.  So good for you for trying so many different things and learning that you love it!
