Music 12” x 12” Art Quilt (Quilt Guild Challenge) (144 sq in=1 sq ft.) 2013.


The Westcliffe Contemporary Quilters and Fiber Artists (WCQFA) guild, Westcliffe, Colorado, issued a challenge to its members:  To create a 12” x 12” art quilt illustrating our own interpretation of a topic utilizing many aspects of quilting, edging and surface design.  The resulting quilts were shown at several galleries and quilt shows.

Every morning, outside our house, we are entertained with a symphony of notes from the birds that occupy nearby trees – truly a sample of nature’s symphony.  So, when this topic was provided as part of our challenge, I could not resist creating this piece. 

Construction:  cottons, reused upholstery fabric, ribbons, dimensional paint, computer printed fabric, fabric paint/ink, shellacked pieces of old music sheets.
