Challenge 2019 – Music!

Every year, my quilt group issues a challenge to make a small 40×40 cm quilt using specific materials. We show the results in our yearly exhibition. Here’s what I did last year.

This year we got this fabric – black with gold. Challenge 2019 - Fabric

The theme to go with it is, unsurprisingly, “Music”. This was not going to be a problem, and sure enough, one day I got hit by an idea. An additional constraint I give myself for these challenges is to make them out of my stash, if at all possible. So, here’s what I pulled out:

Quilting added some more sparkle, and as I usually do with these challenges, I finished it into a pillow cover:

Wouldn’t this make a great decoration for a music room? This project went from idea to completion in a couple of weeks, which happens seldom to never for me.
