Throwback Thursday: Perkiomen Daydreams

At the bottom of each blog post are three little picture boxes that will lead you back to an archived post.  Just the other day, I saw one from my Perkiomen Daydreams quilt….I think this ranks up there of the quilts I am most proud of that we didn’t design.

You may recall that is the third one Kelli and I made.  We made two previous to this one.  You can read about them here.


Can you believe we have one more of these in the works??  It’s for Kelli.  We gave two to our son Buck and one to our daughter Kayla.

Anyway, about a month ago Karl said to me boy mom..I really like that quilt.  If you ever make me another quilt, I want it to be that one.


Can you believe just last week Kalissa said to me, if Craig and I get married, I think we want a Perkiomen Daydreams quilt for our wedding quilt…REALLY???

I guess I am not done making these yet…I think I better start collection some yellow fabric.  I know we were running low on yellow 1 1/2″ strips.  One thing I do like about the quilt is that it’s really fun to throw a party and just mindlessly sew strip sets together.  It worked great for me as a pinning project when we traveled too.  Yep, I’m up for making another!!..but three more…..yes…I guess, how can a mom say no.

If you’re looking for the pattern you can find it in Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps and Shirttails book one.

  1. Since most of my stash is civil war reproduction fabrics, instead of yellow, I used fabrics in the mustard to gold to cheddar range, which gave it a more subdued look, but I love it. There is also one on Pinterest done entirely in 1930s prints which is beautiful! Good luck on doing this one again . . . And again :)

  2. Five kids…five quilts. I made one of these, and it was quite an accomplishment. I don’t have kids, so I get to keep mine. One was enough for me.

  3. I have never seen this pattern before, and it is just STUNNING. Love love love it! I can see why you’ve made it multiple times! You are so lucky to have a daughter to sew with, I am green with envy! Now, I am on the hunt for a copy of Bonnie’s book. I follow her blog and have made several of her free pattern quilts, but now I must make one of these! :) Can you tell me how big it is? It looks big, and I DO love a big quilt :)
