    Chasing Dream Quilt Top

    Hi everyone, been a while since I posted anything on here. This is my first attempt at foundation paper piecing. Finished putting the top together this morning and will be taking this one to the local quilt shop for quilting. Not perfect but I am happy with how this has come out. Pattern is called Chasing Dreams by Jacqueline de Jonge.

    That's a WOW for sure! It boggles my mind how you got those wonderful tones that seem to move through the border. Did you have a bunch of one line of fabric?

    Beautiful quilt. I really like rainbowed quilts. I also like foundation piecing. I will be anxious to see it again after it is quilted. Great job. Thank you for sharing.

    That's lovely. Great use of color. Did you dye your own fabrics to get those colors?

    Wow! That's impressive. Your first attempt at foundation piecing? Your motto must be "go big or go home". LOL

    The borders look like they're moving due to your color placement. Very nice quilt and interesting design, especially with the border motion.
