Meet Rachel!


I’ve been quilting since I was a young teen, but I struggled to make a quilt I'd be proud to show off. It wasn't until I learned some tips and tricks to make it easier and more fun.  Now I’m empowering others through online courses to do the same.

Class Testimonials


Rhonda Philyaw

"Rachel's class taught me to believe that I can. The step by step visual process instilled skills and confidence in every block. I've learned more than [just] how to make this quilt. I've learned tips and tricks to help me far after this quilt is done."

Kendra Good

"Rachel's fun and informative videos make it easy to learn beginner and long time quilter techniques! She is so accessible to help with all of my questions!"

Pat Haynes

"I have learned so much from watching your videos. I'm an expert with my seam ripper for sure!! I must see perfect seams or I'm frustrated until I do! THANKS for coming into my life and teaching me a craft at 75 that I have hoped to learn all of my life!!!"

Longarm Testimonials


Amanda Dill

"Journey Back Quilts has longarmed three of my quilts now! Each one is unique and special! I really appreciate how she works with you to understand the vision you have for each quilt. Whether it be a quilt that is specific to a time period (and keeping the “look” for that era) or keeping the quilts recipient in mind when designing the long arming pattern."

Theresa Conger

"Journey Back quilted the top that my mom made for me! It turned out beautifully and made my quilt a priceless treasure!"

Rebekah Kauffman

"My grandmother started a quilt for me but she passed away before she could finish it. Rachel finished it for me and it is so beautiful and perfect. Could not be happier!"
