That seems to work fine. I mooshed the seams out while I was sewing, but didn’t press them. Probably would have been a good idea. Doing large squares made the project easier. You should be able to tackle the quilt top. Pinning and quilting was mostly just unwieldy. Good luck!

Comment on Autumn project: recycled corduroy quilt by Loretta http://homsher.com/2014/01/autumn-project-recycled-corduroy-quilt/#comment-757 Wed, 22 Jan 2014 13:41:14 +0000 http://homsher.com/?p=984#comment-757 Dear Verne, I love your quilt! I stumbled on it while looking for ideas of what I could do with my Dad’s corduroy shirts. I sew a bit, but have never even considered tackling a quilt. I sent my sister-in-law the picture, as she is a quilter and she suggested I ask a couple of questions. Can you please tell me what size seam allowance you need with corduroy, and how you handled the seams (did you press them open to reduce bulk?)? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Loretta

I’m building my own. Thanks!

I use WordPress and mostly my android phone with the WordPress phone app. There’s a little work here and there on the PC, but the phone makes it convenient enough that I’ll actually update the thing.

I think I warmed it up in a cup of water in the microwave until it was soft.
