I love playing my violin and my piano. That is what inspired my music instrument patterns. Originally I only wanted to make a violin wall hanging but it kind of snowballed from there and I have been making music instruments quilt patterns ever since. This wall hanging is still my most favorite because I connect with these instruments so personally.
I wanted to use a pattern that would bring the instruments together much like in a musical piece. Using the basic idea of a music stave, I spiraled the lines and got my quilting design. I used two sets of five lines: the bottom set was quilted with dark brown thread and the top set was quilted with an ecru one. I used black binding to balance out all the brown in the quilt.
The very first music instrument quilt block I made – the Violin
Piano was next.
A Cello wrapped up this set.
It all started earlier this year with a violin and a piano quilt pattern because I play those instruments, and I continued to make various other musical instrument patterns on request. Once I finish the recently requested saxophone and banjo patterns, I hope to work on a couple more instruments for my rock music quilt.
This is my harmonious piano trio, which is now hanging in the sewing area of my living room.
You can pick up all these musical instrument patterns from my shop. If you need a specific one, please let me know, I will be happy to make one for you.
I am taking a little break from designing and sewing for a few days to pursue another of my very favorite hobbies. I will write all about it very soon.
