    Queen Quilt with Dream Big Panel

    A couple of years ago my younger daughter requested that I make her a purple and green quilt. When she saw the Dream Big panel that I had quilted (see this post - https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...d-t298339.html) she immediately said that it would make a great center for her quilt. So I ordered another panel in that color, searched for purple and green fabrics, used EQ to design the quilt, and this is the result. (There's another quilt peeking out from the bottom.)

    Quilted on my Innova longarm, Warm and White batting. The back is actually a pale lilac. DD's birthday is 11/25, and this will be a surprise.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Oh wow Dunster! That is jaw dropping gorgeous! And probably the prettiest use of the Dream Big Panel I have seen. You designed an awesome quilt and then put it over the top with all that gorgeous quilting. I bet your DD was/will be thrilled as you not only met her criteria but knocked it right out of the park.

    Oh I'm smitten with your gorgeous quilt! I love every aspect of your creativity - the lavender panel is spectacular, your medallion design is a perfect frame, your fabrics are beautiful and the quilting - the quilting is stunning!

    And the best part is that it's a wonderful surprise for your daughter. She is sure to be over-the-moon when she receives it!

    Thank you for sharing

    That's a gorgeous quilt. Green and purple is one of my favorite color combos, and your quilting really takes it up a notch (or two!)

    Wow! Wow! and Wow again. That came out just great. You must take a picture of her when she sees it.

    Stunning quilt Dunster and your quilting is fabulous. Your daughter is going to be surprised by your beautiful gift but I’m sure she’s well aware of your talent. : )

    Love how you highlighted the panel with the quilting motif and the star blocks are wonderful...I really like the floral fabric you used in the quilt too.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
