I challenged myself to come up with a music quilt celebrating my 40 years of music ministry in church and parochial schools that was modern in nature and a bit out of my box. Here is what I came up with. Had lots of fun using templates and using free motion to create movement in the negative spaces.
I am just getting started having fun with my 1995 Ultimate II, finally moving beyond practice mats onto real quilts. I think it will be a lot more fun if I add some music. I've read comments by many LAQers here and on blogs that they can really get into the zone if they set it to music and many designs just go smoother with a nice rhythm behind them. I can see different types of music being best for different designs such as feathers, pebbles, meandering, pebbles, spirals, and geometrics. I have found lots of music playlists for running, treadmill and other kinds of workouts, but I have not found any LAQ music playlists. An internet search turns up playlists of quilting videos, but no music. So I am here to ask--what music do you have on your playlist for your quilting time and do you have favorite music for certain quilting designs? (If we get a good response, this might even be a good subject to eventually add to the Quilters' Favorites board.) Valerie
I'm curious to know where quilters stand on this. I've had some quilters tell me that they won't listen to music or have the tv on while they're quilting, because they need to be able to hear differences in the machine and know right away if something is wrong. Some say it's too distracting and they are afraid they'll lose their flow and make mistakes. I'm just a beginner, so I would like to hear different points of view.
