Ties and Corduroy Project in a box!
I started with a whole bunch of different wales of recycled corduroy. I cut them using a 6 inch square of cardboard from a cereal box. I used the cereal box because I found it quite hard to use my wide blade rotary cutter.
Tip: When recycling clothing into new quilting projects, remove all seams and press as best you can before cutting out your shapes.
I had a bunch of ties that I had collected over several years to make this quilt. I decided to cut either ends of each tie and applique these down onto the cordduroy blocks.
This is my start of this little quilt. This is really like Christmas. I had almost completely forgotten this little quilt.
Catch ya later!
Anxious to see how this finishes.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your interest in recycled clothing uses for quilts.Delete
I'm anxious to see it too....how I wish I had the ties that my dad and father-in-law had because they would be wonderful to make into small memory quilts for our boys. Too late smart, which can be said about so many things.ReplyDelete
I don't have any of my father's ties so you are not alone. Thanks for your comment Mary Anne.Delete
Corduroy's apparently very fashionable this autumn, so you are bang on trend. These blocks just make me smile; such a clever way to use the ties.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love corduroy and I'm finding my additional ties to go with this quilt. Wow, I'm rarely on trend! Good to know!Delete
