Corduroy Road - A Supreme Reveal!

This past winter I had the joy of testing another quilt pattern for my friend Stephanie over at Rummage.  As many of you know, Stephanie has a variety of people test her bag and quilt patterns prior to publication,  She calls us her "Supremes".  

As soon as she showed me the prototype I immediately knew what I was going to do with this very special quilt!  You can read all about the particulars of this quilt HERE.  It is also currently available as a pattern from Connecting Threads.

I've tested many bag patterns for Stephanie using one of her favorite mediums, corduroy.  This was the first quilt I made using corduroy.  I must say I was a bit afraid of it at first, but only because I had never made an entire quilt using corduroy.  Let me say, my fears were unfounded!  Corduroy has now become the new flannel for me!  It's easy to work with, puts less lint in your machine, and gives wonderful dimension to your projects!  I really encourage you to give it a try!
On to the quilt!  I knew that I wanted to make this quilt for my dear blogging friend, Pratima, whose blog is Lakumuki.  Pratima and her husband, Kalyan, hail from Hyderabad in South India, although they currently live in the U.S.  Mr. Squash spent some time in India and Nepal and still remembers a good deal of the Hindi language.  We have enjoyed our blogging friendship and hope to meet in person some day!

Pratima and her husband celebrate the Hindu Festival of Diwali, or Festival of Lights each year.  I picked the bright colors in the quilt to reflect my own interpretation of that colorful celebration.

Mr. Squash helped me pick the quilting design, which is aptly called "New Delhi".  The paisleys in the pattern can be found in many Indian prints.

I used a cotton batting from my stash because of the coordinating light pink color.  It really shows off my quilting.  Believe me when I say this is a most warm and cozy quilt!

Here is a closeup.  The color is a bit off, but you can see the embellished paisley.  

I encourage you to make a quilt using Corduroy!  If you need inspiration, Stephanie has written a book called Uncommonly Corduroy with lots of bag and quilt patterns.

Pratima is also posting about this quilt today.  Please visit her blog Lakumuki.  I'm sure she will tell a lovely story as she always does!

I love a quilt with a story. This is such a beautiful and special quilt gift. Your paisley quilting is gorgeous and I'm thrilled you are a corduroy quilt convert. :o)

AnnieO said...

I haven't found corduroy locally but plan to order some! What a great quilt. My cousin is marrying an Indian and has shared some of the traditions. Paisley is a fave motif!

Sue said...

GORGEOUS QUILT !! Love the Paisley quilting !

Needled Mom said...

It is beautiful and the quilting is perfect for it. I LOVE the feel of a corduroy quilt. It is so soft. There are so many beautiful ones out there now too.

Tammy said...

Absolutely gorgeous as always Candace. I'm sure your friend will treasure the quilt. Hugs!!

pratima said...

As a lucky recipient of this quilt, I can vouch for its velvety softness and warmth, even the colors are more vivid in real life, red is deep and pink is so sweet! Thank you very very much, your paisley quilting is so beautiful! It is a favorite motif for many Indians like Annie mentioned in her comments. Kalyan and I are touched that Diwali festival and Mr.Squash's Indian connection inspired the colors and the theme :-)

Lesley said...

Candace, your quilt is beautiful. Loved reading your story and very interested to hear about a quilt made of corduroy. Well done!

Lynn said...

It's a beautiful quilt. The colors you've chosen are gorgeous. It's always fun seeing Stephanie's new patterns done by her Supremes. I agree with you about the corduroy! jSuch a generous and loving gift.

Linda said...

Gorgeous, Candace!!! Love the colors. I especially enjoyed the story you told of the quilt. It is amazing how quilting can bind folks in ways we never dreamed possible. :-)

KaHolly said...

It's just lovely!! The best part is being a quilt with a story. I have the book, but haven't made anything from it yet. YET! Lack of access to corduroy is the big deterrent.

Aunt 'Reen said...

What a BEAUTIFUL quilt, lovely gift and wonderful story! These make for the greatest quilts of all!

Karen said...

How fun! Beautiful result; I love the paisleys.

Lynn said...
