Good vibrations

I sort of had a lapse there with the chronological steps on this one. It's ready for quilting now though. I added some notes, a black and white flange between the background and the narrow black inner border, and then finished off with a wider print border. The outside border is the same fabric as what's behind the notes, and the colors were perfect with the hand painted background, although I painted the background over a year ago and the fabric was a gift last month. Worked perfectly though. Not sure yet what the quilting pattern is going to be but I'm leaning towards some big sweeping curves sort of echoing the lines of the staff and the keyboard.

Wooh Delta this one is looking great too ... when you say you painted the background did you use dyes or acrylic paint? Look forward to seeing the finished quilt. OOroo ... Bethel

I love this quilt. I think the transparent horn is really cool, and I like the way you repeated the border on the notes. The painted fabric is gorgeous. I would love to see it in person.

It was very nice to visit with you in Quilt Arts. :o)

Great use of colors, I am thinking the music being played is, sweet, happy, but not load, or over the top. The colors say so much.
