Stack of Dreams Quilt and a Giveaway

Stack of Dreams

It’s finished! I feel a bit bad, as this quilt has been sitting and waiting for it’s binding for a few weeks now. I knew I wanted a specific pink (Kona Carnation) but the kids were sick so I couldn’t get to my LQS until today. I’m happy I waited though, rather than using something else I had on hand, because I sure do love how it turned out.

Stack of Dreams Draped

Last July I scored a layer cake of Dream On by Urban Chiks on eBay (Buy it Now – I’m not good at auctions). This line will be available in yardage this fall…probably any week now. They’ve recreated vintage sheets. I love this line because I don’t have to collect a lot of sheets to get a mix-and-match feeling of prints.

Stack of Dreams Detail

I think the wide stacks is a perfect design to show off the prints. The sashing is Kona Ash, a new favorite for sure! I quilted this one with straight horizontal lines, between 3/4″ and 1-1/4″ apart from each other. The coins are also varying heights, so I think the quilting works with it.

Stack of Dreams Back

For the backing I used a light Kona pink…it was a scrap so I’m not entirely sure the color. And then the bottom is Kona white, which really makes the prints pop.

The final quilt measures 40″ x 46″ and will be listed in the shop soon! Perfect crib size for a little girl.

And now for the giveaway! I have a lot of strips leftover. I’m not sure why I thought I’d need the entire layer cake cut up, but I did! So I’m giving them away. :) If you would like to win them to make your own Stack of Dreams coin quilt, simply leave a comment below. I’ll be selecting a winner Monday morning (Oct 4th). Good luck everyone!

** Update **
Random.org selected a winner for me this morning – it’s Cara @ Me? A Mom?! I’m sure this will become something beautiful for those girls of yours Cara. I’ll be contacting you for your address – enjoy!

    Oh, how I’d love some scraps. I’ve been drooling over the layer cakes and charm parks of Dream On, but the fabric budget is a little tight this month.

    I love the look of all the prints! I too wish I could do a vintage sheet quilt but have no idea how to go about acquiring enough different patterns to do so. Winning your scraps would solve my problem *wink wink*

    Would LOVE to win this. My mom said something recently about making so much stuff for swaps and not really having made anything for myself or my family . . . and I would LOVE to make a quilt very similar to yours as a “just because I love you” gift for the mom who has made me so much!

    I have been trying to resist buying Dream On, but seeing it with the Ash just sealed the deal. I must have some! Your quilt is beautiful!

    This is such a beautiful quilt! I love how you used the Kona Ash with it and LOVE the pink binding. I’ve done a couple mini’s using a solid Kona and I really love the look. I would be so excited to get your ‘dreamy’ leftovers!!! :)

    I just saw your quilt on FLICKR and had to come here and read more about it. I LOVE IT! I never would have thought to use Ash with those prints but it is just beautiful. I’d love your leftover fabric strips!

    What a beautiful quilt! You did a wonderful job (I really like the pink on the backing; it’s very cohesive with the DO fabrics and the Kona Carnation)

    I love the Dream On fabrics. They’re colorful and feel so vintage without being stuffy. <3

    Oh what a great giveaway! I love that fabric. Your quilt is great, and I love kona ash too. Almost as much as kona coal…

    says

    Looking at the back of your quilt, Faith, I think your scraps would make a great brick road-ish quilt, separated by a soft solid. Dial me in for this giveaway!

    great quilt! the more I see dream on, the more I love it! I am NOT buying fabric right now (I have to keep telling myself this over and over and over) – so I would love a chance to win!!

    Your quilt turned out beautifully – I love the fabric and the stripes are awesome! Thanks for a chance to win those extra strips – maybe a table runner would be something that I would make if I won (hint, hint)

    Miss Mew says

    Thanks for your giveaway… are you sure you wouldn’t want to use the strips to make a pillow to match the quilt? I am learning to quilt so my supplies are few and this would be very nice to win!!

    Mitzi says

    I am trying to finish up my current quilt in order to start something with the Dream On fabric. It’s so fresh and pretty. Great giveaway and your quilt is beautiful.

    says

    Well, to get a stack of strips here in Brazil (where it’s so hard to find all these sweet prints you guys got abroad), would really be a dream come true! Congrats on your work!!

  23. 69

    says

    That binding is the PERFECT pink, so I think you were right to wait until you could get your hands on it! And the quilt shows of the fabrics beautifully. I have a serious collection of vintage sheets, and I’d love to add some “Dream On” to the pile. ;)

    says

    You were smart to wait for just the right binding. The pink looks great. Another advantage of the new reproduction vintage sheet fabrics is that they are 100% cotton, rather than poly/cotton with an unknown history. Honestly, I initially thought your quilt was made of vintage sheets.

    I had a chance to buy some of this at Spring Market, and sadly I passed…. The shop I work for isn’t ordering any so I’d love to win these!!!!

    I’ve been dreaming up a quilt for a friend this week. I thought about doing a stacked coins design with creamy white corduroy sashing. I really like the wide horizontal quilting you’ve done and may just have to go with it too!

    The quilt is beautiful! Love the gey and pink with it. I’ve been trying to figure out what color of Kona goes best with this line.

    Liza says

    I would love to win the scraps. Please! I have amassed quite a collection of strips from other projects, so I’ve got all the makings for a new string quilt…but, I could use more!

    I would love to take those scraps off your hands. My most recent quilt was a stacked coin and now I have an idea for a variation. This would be a great start.

    Your quilt is lovely. I am a college student and would love to win this to make a quilt for a gift for my parents. Thanks!

    I think it’s so funny how many people will respond to something where the words “free” or “giveaway” are found! :) I just posted something free on Craigslist yesterday and laughed at the number of responses I received. I’m thinking giving it to the man from Africa who is helping to build a new school in Africa (and is taking all the leftover unused building materials and clean-up materials he can find) was a good idea! Anyway, I love your quilts. They are beautiful and inspiring. I’m glad to have found your blog!
