Joan’s Chasing Dreams Quilt


I finally got back to my longarm today (after a 10 day hiatus of cleaning house, snowboarding & sewing clothes) and finished up Joan’s quilt! I’m so happy with how it turned out.


I’ve had mad love for checkerboard quilting lately. To the point where I just don’t know why there hasn’t been more of it in my life up to this point. In the pointy border I really wanted to emphasise the look  of the rainbow points sort of making strips through the quilt, so used diagonal lines to emphasise this.


I spent a long time trying to figure out what to do in the centre. Finally, I decided just to stitch in the ditch the sames of the star, and some simple lines in the inside. I didn’t want to overpower the super awesome piecing here.

I’ve really been on a blogging streak lately! 4 quilts blogged in a week!

Later days,

  1. They just keep getting more amazing. Just when you think you have seen the most beautiful, another one comes by email and tops the last one…best ever!!!

  2. Beautiful, love your quilting designs. What thread colour are you using? Do you change it for a rainbow quilt?

  3. I just returned home a few minutes ago to see your spectacularly wonderful quilting on the Chasing Dreams. There are not words to describe how absolutely wonderful it is. You are a master of design and concept and your ability on the longarm is amazing. I am so impressed and delighted. I will send the payment in a few minutes but I would like to know if you would be interested in quilting DeJong’s circle of life. We could discuss that after I have sent off my payment. Thank you, thank you. I can hardly wait to see the quilt in person. Joan >
