Corduroy quilts: new fabric to stitch, stroke, and stash (+ fabric giveaway!)

Have you seen the new corduroy fabrics at your local quilt shop? It isn’t the fabric you remember from the ’70s. Still velvety and tactile, yes, but the new generation of corduroy is lightweight, cuddly soft, and available in an array of—get this—prints! You know what that means: it’s time to make space on your sewing-room shelves to stash a whole new textile for creating quilts.

In the new book Uncommonly Corduroy, designer Stephanie Dunphy mixes corduroy and cottons in cozy quilts, bags, and more. As part of the Uncommonly Corduroy blog tour (see tour dates below), she’s here at Stitch This! today to give us a corduroy education—and to entice us to try this new-again fabric in her fresh designs. Welcome, Stephanie!


GIVEAWAY ALERT! Our friends at Robert Kaufman debuted their new “Cool Cords” corduroy-print fabric line at Fall Quilt Market—and they gave us FOUR fat-quarter bundles of it to share with you! Find out how you can win one of the bundles plus a copy of Uncommonly Corduroy at the bottom of this post.

Robert Kaufman Cool Cords fabric giveaway


Stephanie DunphyCrafting with corduroy, you say?  My hope is to share the velvety goodness of corduroy and show that no—it’s not just for pants!  My love for corduroy began in the late ’60s and early ’70s, when hip-hugging bell-bottom corduroys were in style. I’ve always had a love for purses and bags and yes, I had a corduroy one. Uncommonly Corduroy combines my love of corduroy, quiltmaking, and bag making. (You can never have too many bags, right?)

I’m not an expert in textiles, but there are two things you need to know about corduroy: nap and wale. This doesn’t refer to what a fussy baby needs! Nap refers to the way the fabric lays. If you pet it in one direction it’s soft and smooth, but rub it in the other direction and it’s rough and bumpy. I love that tactile quality. Wale refers to the number of ridges or bumps per inch; fewer ridges equals heavier corduroy because the ridges are wider. More ridges equal finer, softer corduroy. The majority of corduroy I use is 21-wale, which is as soft as a hankie and best for quiltmaking because of the drape. Wider wale is great if you would like to make a sturdy bag.

Nap matters in garment sewing and upholstery but not in quilt or bag making. If you want the nap to lay in the same direction, you might need extra yardage.

Since corduroy does have nap, I press in the direction of the nap. Because corduroy is slightly heavier than quilter’s cotton, I press my seams open to avoid any bulk that may occur. I use 80/12 and 90/14 needles and cotton or cotton/poly thread. Corduroy also makes dust, so it’s important to clean your machine between projects. This is no different than using flannel or doing machine quilting. Batting and flannel cause the fuzzies, and in general it’s a good practice to treat your machine well so she doesn’t throw hissy fits.

Stephanie's adorable dog, AbbyAlthough the quilts in my book have not been washed yet, my dear dog, Abby (right), has her own corduroy and flannel quilt and it gets washed often. So if you’re wondering about the “washability” of corduroy quilts, it’s just like washing pants.

Depending on the manufacturer, corduroy comes in varying widths and price per yard. The majority of corduroy I used in my book is by Robert Kaufman. The price per yard is comparable to traditional quilting cottons. If the corduroy is wider than 42″ (some are as wide as 58″), you are getting more fabric for your money. Bonus, right?

I prefer supporting my local brick-and-mortar quilt shops but some don’t carry corduroy just yet. I list resources in my book for online shops, but my hope is that we can start a corduroy craze and get quilt shops to include it in their inventory! I mentioned that other manufacturers produce corduroy, but I have found Robert Kaufman to have the most awesome prints, plus an array of yummy solids.

More projects from Uncommonly Corduroy:

I Heart Dresdens corduroy bag
“I Heart Dresdens” bag

Projects from Uncommonly Corduroy
“Travels with Lou” and “Just Jane” bags

Projects from Uncommonly Corduroy
“California Girl Scarf” and “Sister Sharon” purse

Uncommonly Corduroy shares projects made using all corduroy (top, back, binding) as well as projects made in combination with flannel, quilter’s cotton, and even wool. As much as I’d love for you to grab some corduroy and give a project a try, all of the projects can also be made using quilter’s cotton. I’ve written the yardage for 42″-wide fabric (equal to quilter’s cotton), so instructions can be used by one and all and aren’t limited by a specific fabric type, width, or availability. I hope you love the projects enough to try them in whatever fabric floats your polka-dot boat. Or perhaps my book will help you start a new stash? Fingers crossed!

~Piecefully, Stephanie

  • Uncommonly Corduroy is an amazing book! So many lovely projects. I’m very happy to have a copy. Great combination, quilts, bags and even a scarf pattern
    Maybe not original, but I would love to make a quilt with corduroy. Would really like to experience the feel of it and how it looks when washed. And maybe with the left overs I could make a cover for Toos my dachshund, for the winter. Must give a lovely feeling for her. And with the last pieces I might be able to make a cawl for myself (-:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    —Karen on February 20, 2014
  • I’m thinking a quilt using a tossed ( or disappearing) four patch would be fun. Of course a nice tote would be good, as well as dog jackets for my dogs. Just too many ideas to list.

    —Diana Kay on February 20, 2014

    —Cindy Wienstroer on February 20, 2014
  • I would love to make some fun bibs for the new babies my friends are having. Soft and durable yet beautiful at the same time.

    —Debi Pennington on February 20, 2014
  • What a great book and giveaway! I too loved my hip hugger courduroy bell bottoms in the 1970’s and am so glad there are NO photos for blackmail! I have seen a few courduroy prints at my local shop and was intrigued by their softness! I think a big cuddly quilt would be a cozy addition to my living room couch! Thanks for your great blog!
    Warm regards,
    Ruth Lutz

    —Jane Larke on February 20, 2014
  • I have used corduroy many times before – mainly using slacks that i thought my husband no longer "needed" – he was not happy when he found them as part of a blanket for our cat – but I won him over when getting a cover for his iPad made from various corduroy pieces.

    —eva on February 20, 2014

    —Lisa Marie on February 20, 2014
  • Since my first granddaughter was born a few years ago I have tried to find the wale corduroy and haven’t been able to. I was thrilled to see this book coming out soon when she first showed it on her blog. I now have our 2 yr old granddaughter too and would love to make her a cute little jumper. I also need to make her some sort of little floor cushion since she lives in our home with her parents and always comes to spend time with me in my sewing room. Right now there are a few boxes of fabric waiting for me to wash them before putting them away and she’s been using those are her little ‘chair’. I think she needs a nice squishy soft corduroy pillow. And maybe a matching one for her dolly we got her for her 2nd birthday last week.

    —VickiT on February 20, 2014
  • I think these corduroys would make such wonderful cuddly stuffed animals!

    —Lori Morton on February 20, 2014
  • Love cords of all widths. The warmest coat I have ever owned was a long (mid calf)dark green corduroy with a wide cream colored corduroy collar). I never thought of using it for a quilt. I know it would be warm. Would love to have some to try but have not seen any in the shops in my area. Thanks

    —Becky Sims on February 20, 2014

    Teresa Stanulis on February 20, 2014
  • Corduroy makes me think of a pair of men’s pants, I remember the ones from the 70’s. So I would like to make a quilt in masculine colors, like tan and navy, for my son and his family.

    —Mary Gonzales on February 20, 2014

    Jill of Apple Avenue Quilts on February 20, 2014
  • I have the tan piece of corduroy that was the backing on the corduroy quilt we made for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. It got too heavy for my mother to handle and my sister changed the backing. I also have a large piece of purple wide wale corduroy. My plan is to make a quilt for our guest room. Now I have some real inspiration to accomplish this quilt!

    —Janie on February 20, 2014
  • How amazing I should find this today. Our Ladies Aid at church was just given a large quantity of corduroy and it’s the first time I’d thought of quilts made from it. Would love to try the new corduroy also to see what difference between the old and the new. Do you think they could be combined? I’m sure the book would also give some great ideas. Thanks so much for the informative blog and a winning opportunity. 🙂

    —Ruth on February 20, 2014
  • I am very interested in sewing with corduroy now that I’ve read this post! I would love to make a small, snuggly lap quilt to throw over my legs while reading. Some quilts are too big, not warm enough, but a smallish one with warm corduroy would be perfect!

    —Carmen on February 20, 2014
  • This is a new concept for me. I think it would make a great quilt for my husband, sons, or grandsons. I would try a bearpaw, star, pinwheel, or an applique pattern.

    —Deborah Kanatzar on February 20, 2014

    —darlene macdonald on February 20, 2014

    —Nadine on February 20, 2014
  • I would make the Mr. D quilt (as our last name actually starts with a D) for my husband. And it would all "retro" back to when I met my husband – who was wearing cords at the time~! Any leftovers I’d have to make a short vest for my enjoyment. Thank you~!

    —Linda Danehy on February 20, 2014

    —Quilting Tangent on February 20, 2014

  • I’d love to have some of that corduroy to use with my denim quilts! Right now I’m getting pretty excited about denim — yes, the tear-up-old-jeans kind — and I’m thinking the contrast in texture could be lots of fun. And I’ve got to get back to ripping denim . . . But what about those lovely lovely flowers in bright corduroys on my nice soft old denim? Ooooooh.

    —Pam B on February 20, 2014
  • When our daughter was in Kindergarten, I made her two precious printed corduroy outfits that she was so proud of. Now that she’s grown, I’d love to make her a corduroy quilt (in a modern pattern, of course-she doesn’t go for my style of quilts!) to bring back memories of those outfits from days gone by.

    —Cindy Ryles on February 20, 2014

  • I’ve had a stash of corduroy for years, some of the material already cut into squares, with the idea of making a quilt with it. I would be so happy to have prints to add to the solids. (I am imagining what I could do with them, and would be thrilled to be able to use my existing stash.) BTW, I just LOVE Abby’s coat.

    —Rebecca Bosen on February 20, 2014
  • I love corduroy I made my first quilt from corduroy and wore it out after 25 years of loving it and grandchildren loving it as well.

    —Lena Truitt on February 20, 2014

    —Elaine in Maine on February 20, 2014

    —SH on February 20, 2014
  • Love the fabric collection!
    I would like a quilt for my favorite long distances truck driver, my eldest son.
    A corduroy quilt would be perfect for his Peterbilt sleeper.
    A reminder at the end of the day, that Mom loves her truck driver and is so proud of him!!!!
    It takes an amazing amount of skill to drive a B Train down the highway during Canadian Winters!
    And again during the summer tourist months….when the highways are filled with vehicles….and drivers who are often more interested in the scenery than the highway!!!!
    Yes, I would love to make Darren a corduroy quilt…..

    —Kathleen Bigler on February 20, 2014
  • ANY quilt from that great book would be a thrill to make. I really love the one with the star in the middle-can’t remember it’s name. I’m glad that someone has resurrected corduroy-I though it was an endangered specie! I recall making several garments from varying weights of corduroy/velvet in the ’70’s and regret giving them away, now. I hope this means these fabrics are making a comeback. While the lighter weight ones are great for quilts, I would love to also get heavier weight ones and cotton velveteen to work with again.

    —Rosemary on February 20, 2014
  • I have always loved corduroy, but never thought of using it in a quilt…why not? It would be soft and cuddly! YUM!!!

    —Irene on February 20, 2014
  • I love corduroy and would love to have some fabric and the book to try it out. I had never thought of using corduroy, maybe because I am new at quilting.

    I think it would be fun to do a bag to carry projects in, usually every bag I acquire gets used for craft projects no matter what it is made with: plastic, paper, cloth, leather, whatever?

    It would be great fun to have something made with corduroy especially if I make it myself.

    —Debrielle Welch on February 20, 2014

    —Rita Scott on February 20, 2014
  • OMG….I am soooo excited to try out the new cords for the soon to be born 2nd Great Granddaughter expected in May. It seems like this would be a great blanket for playing on the floor or cuddling in bed..soft but durable and lots of brightness. With the leftovers I would make a doll quilt for her big sister. Can’t wait to see them in my favorite quilt shop if I don’t win some here. Fingers crossed:):)

    —Barbara Dolan on February 20, 2014

    —Barbara on February 20, 2014

  • I would love to make another "Wubby" for my grand daughter. A Wubby is a very small blanket, about half the size of a pillow case, with tabs surrounding the outer edges that a child can touch and stroke in order to use those tactile skills for comfort. With all the decorative prints and child friendly colors I saw and the softness of the corduroy fabrics, they are most certainly on my list for a Wubby 🙂

I made a jumper in black, a skirt in teal, etc. it just feels wonderful to touch & I am a tactile kind of gal. A quilt in the family room would be great to cuddle up with on a cold day & soothing to the touch. I love that it’s making a "comeback" in a new, updated way.

    —Linda Hasz on February 20, 2014
  • I just uncovered a little stash of soft corduroy scraps as I was cleaning my studio, and was wondering what to do with them — the dresden bag would be just the right thing!

  • I LOVE corduroy, I’d make a bag for me, preferably a patchwork one

    wendy on February 21, 2014
  • I would love to win this book. I have been saving my corduroy scraps from making my children’s pants for over 25 years. They would make great bags. It would be so nice to win a bundle of soft, beautifully printed corduroy. I think my grandkids would love to snuggle under a corduroy quilt. Thank you for the opportunity to win. 🙂

    —Sheila Fernkopf on February 21, 2014
  • Who knew that corduroy prints could be so cute. I love the Mr. and Mrs. D quilts.

    Susan McAdams on February 21, 2014
  • I think corduroy would be perfect for a quilt for the couch especially since we have had the worst winter ever. A corduroy made quilt would be a perfect snuggly winter option. These new designs would be perfect! Thank you for a chance to win.

    —Karon on February 21, 2014
  • Well…..now we have "new" cord fabric? How delightful. I can see it as quilt backings for TShirt quilts, for table runners, for picnic quilts and for a "guy" quilt. I’m sharpening my cutter for a whole new experience!

    Arvella Gatlin on February 21, 2014
  • Yeah, yet another type of fabric to purchase and play with!

    —Libby on February 21, 2014
  • I love corduroy, it and flannel are truly my two favorite fabrics. The feel is so decadent that it seems like you’re enjoying a guilty pleasure:) So my obvious choice would be a new quilt for my bed to wrap myself up in.

    —PurpleFigment on February 21, 2014
  • Beautiful fabrics! Loved things my Mom made for me with corduroy as a child. I would make a quilted blankie for myself out of this lovely fabric!

    —Elaine Judd on February 21, 2014
  • I had seen some printed corduroy recently and wondered how it might work up in quilts so thanks to Stephanie for answering that question!

    Without a doubt I’d love to make purses and tote bags but think that corduroy just might challenge my love affair with flannel for warm and cuddly quilts and quilt backs, especially for a stadium blanket.

    Vivian on February 21, 2014
  • Love the Mr. and Mrs. D quilts–I would make one of them for my dear friend who has MS. The soft, warm corduroy would be perfect for keeping her cozy!

    —Karen on February 21, 2014
  • Printed, more lightweight corduroy, who knew?! It’d make a great lap throw. And that blue "California Girl Scarf" is gorgeous. I’d love to make one of those.

    —Laura on February 21, 2014
  • I always fantasized about a corduroy quilt – it’s always been one of my favorite fabrics. Not only would the quilt be cuddly as you say, but it would be very sturdy. Perfect for a lap quilt or car quilt.

    —Carol Gearey on February 21, 2014
  • The corduroy bags are really drawing me in. My late mother sewed a lot with corduroy and made wonderful bags for my sister and I. I’m excited to use more of this lovely fabric.

    —Elizabeth Bolton on February 21, 2014

  • I’m a child of the 70s, so I remember, and love, corduroy. It’s so comfortable and soft. I love that I can now quilt with it! What a wonderful gift quilt this would make for my son away at college. I will definitely be looking for this at the quilt shop.

    —marian on February 21, 2014
  • I would love to try a purse with the "new" corduroy, although a cozy quilt always speaks to me. Even though we are living in Arizona right now, we are seriously considering moving back to upstate New York…and yes, I know what kind of winter they are having; all the more reason for warm, cuddly quilts!!! Thanks for the info: I haven’t seen any down in this part of the world.

    —Laura on February 21, 2014
  • Corduroy has certainly changed over the forty years since I used it to make pants for my three children! I love the new designs and softness. Back then corduroy was pretty standard and of solid colors. I’m eager to make "Little Sprout" quilts for my daughters. I think I still have some of their corduroy scraps left that I could mix in. Wouldn’t that be fun for their own kids to see!

    —Virginia in AK on February 21, 2014
  • I would love to have a warm quilt for my bed.

  • I’ve been a corduroy fan for a long time. I still have corduroy slacks and a jacket that I have kept for over 30 years because I like the fabric’s velvety softness and warmth. Hope to make a scrappy picnic blanket with this corduroy combined with weathered denim. The new corduroy fabrics look terrific, and Stephanie’s new book gives lots of wonderful new project inspiration! Appreciate this chance to win!

    —JLouise on February 21, 2014

    —kanga on February 21, 2014
  • Teddy bears of course! They are the most logical "Corduroy" choice. (and I like that children’s story too!) Other than that yes a quilt would be nice and I saw a few ideas that would be fun to try as well as the tote and scarf. Oh the possibilities!

    —Tonie Peterson on February 21, 2014
  • Love corduroy. Would make some big comfy couch pillows

    —Lawana Whaley on February 21, 2014
  • If I had lots of corduroy fabrics in these pretty colors I would make Weighted Sensory quilts for the special needs kids .I use OOP L.B. fabric now as it is what I have & the thread count is great in corduroy so the beads can’t slip out .The new colors hear are so Cheery !! Love it !!

    —Sharon Carbine on February 21, 2014

    —Pauline on February 21, 2014
  • Since my husband and I are getting older (my kids say older than dirt) we both tend to feel chilly most of the time. So a corduroy and flannel quilt would feel SEW good! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Rhonda on February 21, 2014
  • Wow ! would I love to pair up some of this corduroy(lightweight)with some of the material I have been gathering from old jeans to make grandsons quilts. P Rand

  • I love corduroy and am glad they are making it suitable for quilts as the first thing I would make with it is a cuddly quilt.

    —Judy on February 21, 2014
  • What a novel idea – corduroy for quilting! I love it! Perhaps a purse or a bright quilted wall hanging would be my idea for using this fabric. Count me in!

    —quiltgal4 on February 21, 2014
  • California Poppies caught my eye right away. BUT, when I saw that Stephanie’s dog Abby has a corduroy and flannel quilt….well, a quilt for each of my two doxies might have to come first! Love the fun prints in the Kaufmann fabrics!

    —Caryn Goulden on February 21, 2014
  • I have never thought of using corduroy as a quilting fabric. After reading this article, I am looking forward to beginning to add it into my stash and using it in a quilt for my Great Granddaughter and in a bag for myself. After that, I will have to consider more projects.

    Thank you for this chance to win the fat quarters and the book.

    —Doris Worthen on February 21, 2014
  • I think the first thing I would make would be a back pack

    —Jo on February 21, 2014
  • I love working with corduroy. I made a lap quilt for an uncle who was having health issues a few years ago. He and his wife really liked it. I used a mix of corduroy and plaid flannel strips on the front and fleece on the back. I used a "quilt as you go technique". would like to make some more. They are nice and warm but mot as bulky and heavy as some quilts.

    —Louise Buker on February 21, 2014
  • I would probably make the Little Sprouts quilt. The large blocks of fabric present lots of opportunity to show off the prints, color and texture of the corduroy. Several years ago I saw a display of Gee’s Bend quilts. I had never before considered corduroy as a quilting fabric but was so impressed with the quiltmakers’ skill in creating patterns from large blocks of corduroy fabric.

    —Pearl on February 21, 2014
  • Was just telling my Mother the other day to use her supply of corduroy to make some lap quilts!!! She hadn’t thought that she could use corduroy to make a quilt.

  • I love the weight of corduroy and would love to make a couple of bags from it.

    —Becky (central oregon) on February 22, 2014
  • I’m one of those old time sewers that used corduroy for my kids clothes. Since they grew up I haven’t sewn with it much, only for heavy quilts which I tied because they were much too heavy to stitch together. I appreciated the tips and the reminders. I would very much like to make the purses and the quilts certainly look interesting. Thanks.

    —Mom C on February 22, 2014
  • Reminds me of my corduroy pants as a kid, loved the feel! Would definitely make a quilt for the couch!

    —Bea Matheson on February 22, 2014

    —Gail on February 22, 2014
  • What a wonderful book , thanks for the chance to win 🙂

    Sheila on February 22, 2014
  • This article warms my heart with memories of wearing corduroy as child. I loved the way it felt, tracing the lines up and down with my fingers. I even loved the sound of walking while wearing corduroy pants. While I love all the bags, I would start with "Travels with Lou" to get reacquainted with the fabric. Then I would use the design from "I heart dresdens" to make snugly pillows for my family room.

    —Kathy Renz on February 22, 2014
  • I would love to make a corduroy bag. I hate to admit it but I have corduroy from the 70’s or 80’s that was supposed to be made into pants or jackets but never got done. Now I have a new use for it. Maybe I’ll even be brave enough to add it to a quilt!

    —Mary Ann on February 22, 2014
  • I am planning a nice warm jacket made with beautiful corduroy.

    —Debby H on February 22, 2014
  • I love the way today’s corduroy looks and feels, lots brighter and softer–I would love to make myself a cozy, snuggly, lab quilt to go with me (and cat) in my TV chair (my house is always drafty). Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers

    Patsy Marinelli on February 23, 2014
  • I would like to make Mrs. D quilt. I think that would be appropriate since I am a "Mrs. D", plus I really like the quilt.

    —Liz Dicrescenzo on February 23, 2014
  • This book sounds lovely and now I have a whole new section to explore at fabric shops (and the terminology to ask questions!) Plus, I love the use of simple photo props for taking pictures of quilts. I think first I’d make a little quilt pet bed cover (the old girl needs a lot of warmth and cushion in her old age so I’d definitely be testing the washability.) I can just imagine how cuddly a corduroy quilt would be!

    Kristin S. on February 23, 2014
  • Never thought I’d consider quilting with corduroy,but why not? Quilted bags could be more sturdy with it. Think I’ll try it.

    —Vivian Fitzpatrick on February 23, 2014

    Kathie on February 24, 2014
  • seems like a rag quilt would work well. the kids always find them to be so cuddly!

    —Sarah C. on February 24, 2014
  • I love to rub corduroy between my fingers and on my face, so I guess its quilts for me.

    —Chriss Jasper on February 24, 2014

    Dolores on February 25, 2014
  • Hi,

    I will mix the corduroy with denim — I think that will be a great combo.

    The colors of the corduroy mixed with the texture of the denim (a match made in heaven).

    This quilt maybe the next big trend in the quilting world.

    Remember -it was my idea! But happy to share it.

    —Joann on February 25, 2014
  • The wheels are turning. I think I’d like to pair the new corduroy with denim to start.

    Kathleen Gold on February 26, 2014

    Tara E on February 26, 2014
  • I have a corduroy quilt that is 40 years old. It is backed with flannel and I have washed it many times. Growing up; it was our favorite on cold days. It has held up VERY well. I had not thought about it for a while. THANK YOU for this new book; it is time for me to make one for my granddaughter!

    —Dinah Smith on February 26, 2014

    —Brenda P on February 26, 2014
