I was contacted by a dear high school friend a few weeks ago about the possibility of making a quilt for her sister-in-law. My friend’s father-in-law is a rockabilly drummer living just outside London, and her husband makes a living as a jazz bass player, so the music vibe runs in the family. It didn’t take long to find one perfect print featuring a full drum set (score)!
Fabric (bottom to top): Kanvas That’s Jass Instruments in Grey, Three Quarter Time Notes in White, Kanvas That’s Jazz Notes in Black and White, and Kona Black (quilt backing)
I have a bit of a musical background, albeit far back in my childhood, so I am pretty excited to be playing around with a music themed set of fabrics. After consulting with my friend a bit about an accent color to keep the quilt from being just black and white, we settled on purple. And again, I was really excited to find a fun print to work with.
Fabric (bottom to top): Little Tinies Scales in Lilac, Kona Amethys, Kona Regal
I thought that the tiny “scales” print was an awesome play on words (music scales), and thankfully my friend agreed!
I am looking forward to getting started on this commission.
