Joanne's Oriental Beauty

Get ready to be wowed!  This Oriental Beauty was stitched by Joanne Colleaux of Armstrong, British Columbia.
Joanne brought her wonderful colour sense and exquisite stitching ability to this piece.
Front and back, it's stunning.  Choosing a plain backing fabric has allowed the free motion quilting to really show.
Awhile back, Joanne stitched a version of Farrago which she named "Underwater Blossoms".
 It was a winner at the Pacific Northwest Show, in Tacoma, WA
Joanne tells me she has my Quilting Beauties book on order and it is exciting to think how she will translate some of those designs. Thank you, Joanne.  


  1. Well done, Joanne - I love how the centre medallion is featured, and the fabrics are scrumptious!

  2. Underwater Blossoms is a beautiful interpretation of the design. Just lovely!
