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!

    September 29, 2010

    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!!

  67. Amber

  69. Sheila

    September 29, 2010

    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. 😉

    Lovely quilt! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win.

  71. Nancy

    September 29, 2010

    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.

  72. Jennifer

    September 29, 2010

    Id love the chance to win you did a good job.

  73. Doris

    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!
