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!

    Nancy 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 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!
