Sunday Stash…Perkiomen Daydreams Finished!!

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.

Here are the official numbers.

Used this Week:   35 yards

Used year to Date:   240.5  yards

Added this Week:    0 yards
Added Year to Date:    191 yards

Gifted:  81 yards

Net Used for 2011:  48.5 Yards of store bought fabric…9.5 yards of recycled fabric….81 yards gifted.

    OMG I am so proud of y’all! Two done and enough sewn for two more? Y’all are really n a sewing high! I know you must have said before, but can’t remember, what size do they finish and is there a pattern for these? They are made with one inch strips, right? Again so proud of all and y’all should get an award..make sure the recipients give you one!!

    WOW, WOW, WOW!! It seems like you just started those two GIANT quits yesterday. They are already done, quilted, bound and ready to be gifted! Congratulations! Hard to believe you have any 1.5 inch strips left at all. Are the new ones going to be identical or are you planning to mix up the layout a bit for variety?

    Mercy, they are beautiful! Good job by both of you. If I were there, I would skip giving you a big hug in order to massage your tired shoulders instead.

    Oh My Goodness! You two did a great job getting those done. I can’t believe you quilted and bound them both this week. You deserve a nice massage! Great job and can’t wait to see the next two….
    Oh – I’m still working on my crumb quilt… I hope to have it completed for the next reveal… just need to start working on the outer border.

    I cannot even believe that you guys have finished these 2 quilts already! I can’t imagine making 1 of these quilts in my lifetime, let alone 4 of them…you are amazing!

  6. Nancy

    They are beautiful! I wish I had a sewing ‘buddy’ like the two of you…..what a wonderful way to work on quilts. You both are inspirations to all of us that visit your blog. Now I must to go look in that book for the pattern. Happy Holidays!

    OMGosh, OMGosh!

    Astonishing – you both should be VERY, VERY proud of yourselves. I hope the recipients read all the comments about your amazing projects!!! And they are beautiful, to boot!!!

  11. Pat C in Washingon

    Holy CATS! What a lot of work! But what a beautiful outcome, and what a great way to spend time with one of your daughters :D

  12. Skye

    Opened your page & when I saw the picture, cried out the full OMG!!! Amazing work, ladies! 10,000 pieces “sounds” a little intimidating, but they are so awesome…Hmmm…

  13. Michelle

    FOUR of them?!?!?! You’ve got to put something on the labels that shows they have twins (quadruplets?) because that is just way too neat to ignore. :-)

  14. Valerie

    I can’t believe you and your daughter have these two quilts done already. You’re amazing!! It wasn’t that long ago that you started them. A quilt like that (10,000 pieces) would probably take me years to do. The quilts are fabulous, what a treasure trove of fabrics. I think it is wonderful that you are able to quilt with your daughter, just think of the memories you are making, not to mention the quilts. Enjoy your family Christmas!

    WOW, great job. And really it doesn’t seem like you have worked on them for long. Beautiful quilts. Thanks for sharing.

    Great Quilts and an outdoor driveway shot in Iowa a week before Christmas with no snow? What a coup! Merry Christmas to you.

  17. Laurel from Iowa

    WOW – they look amazing! Congratulations to both of you.

    I have a question: with all the seams in this quilt, is it really heavy? Probably a dumb question, but it ‘seems’ like it would be :D

  18. Helen in the UK

    I’m amazed by anyone that makes ONE of these quilts … the fact that you each want to make TWO is real dedication to scrap quilting!! I’m a big fan of Bonnie’s and am currently doing the mystery, but that is as complicated as I want to get!! Huge kudos to you both :)
    PS: Love the solids you used for the backing.

  19. bingobonnie

    wow! 2 more are in the works!!! You and Kelli have found your calling!!! :) 2012 is gonna be a great year for both of you.

    Love from Indiana! ~bonnie
