Keep On Dreaming Quilt

My "Keep On Dreaming" quilt is based on a musical inspiration for the Project Quilting Challenge Number Two. Keep On Dreaming is my brother's song and I posted the song on Tuesday. When I first listened to the song I said to him, "That would be a great song to quilt!" --- I wasn't exactly sure what I meant... I guess it was the way the song flowed. I love to sing it while I am quilting.

 

I stitched some words from the lyrics - Keep on Dreaming in the white squares. I was planning to place the stars exactly in the center of the hearts, but as I placed them on the hearts they looked so cool off center. Long wavy stitching lines on the center blue area. I wiggle line stitched on the hearts

and stitched swirls in the background of the star fabric.

I am giving this wall hanging to my brother, Mark to hang in his music studio. He has already chose a place for it.

Keep On Dreaming by Mark Nordeen

 

Somehow we all are part of a greater love.

And somehow we are made from the stars above.

And somehow that star inside will shine through the gray.

And light up the dream of a new day.

----------

I'm one lonely star in the sky, shining my light.

----------

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'm just one voice and I will be heard.

----------

Someday we'll see the light when clouds recede.

Someday we will learn to serve and not defeat.

Someday we'll find a way to give up the hate.

And bring back the love before it's too late.

----------

Will I be seen in the sky, shining my light?

----------

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'm just one voice and I will be heard.

----------

When I shine in the dark will you see me?

When I call out for you will you hear?

----------

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'll keep on dreaming of a new day on the earth.

I'm just one voice and I will be heard.

I'm just one voice and I will be heard.
