Music in the air... and blog hops ,too!

Music in the air

Recently, I had the pleasure of testing some  paper pieced patterns for Kristy, of Quiet Play.  She is so creative and talented , as both  a quilter and a pattern designer!  Go on over and  check out her awesome patterns in her Craftsy store.  (There are 108 patterns in there now!)
I really enjoyed making these  blocks, because I have been involved with music for as long as I can remember.  (My  mother was a music teacher, and taught piano lessons at our house throughout my childhood. There was always music at school and in our home.)

The set is called Musical  Notes Paper Pieced  Pattern.   There are patterns for 5 blocks in this set, with each pattern making an 8 inch square block.

The Eighth note and Quarter note  blocks

The G clef,   Sixteenth note  , and Bass  clef    blocks
These last three blocks have lots of details !

The whole set....  Ta Da !!  

I think I will make a pillow out of these someday... maybe for my mother!
