Here they are….Perkiomen Daydreams quilt… Kelli and I have been sewing on these for quite a few weeks all in an effort to finish them up for our family Christmas which is today. One of the quilts is for Buck and his girlfriend Jen and the other is for Kayla and her boyfriend Spencer.
Can you believe that each quilt has 10,000 pieces in it?? They are lots of fun to make.
In the sewing process, Kelli and I really fell in love with the quilts…so much in love that we decided we both wanted quilts just like them. So when we were sewing the strip sets together, we just kept sewing. Kelli and I actually have all the strip sets sewn together to make TWO MORE of the same quilts…one for me and one for her.
The quilts use 1 1/2″ strips. The pattern can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps and Shirttails book 1. If you are thinking about making one, you may want to check out this organization tip that Kelli had.
I raided my solids stash to put together a back for one of the quilts….
The other back has the 108″ backing fabric that I had in last week’s stash report.
I used a variegated thread on the front and back and love it.
I am so glad we got the two quilts finished up in time…last week was a real scramble for me. I machine quilted and bound both of them.
