I had real trouble getting a good photo of this. Outside on the lawn there was too much glare from the sun. In the garage on the clothes line the wind picked up ever time I pushed the button. I think the above comes up better if you click on it and see the original size.
I decided to do stippling quilting in all the applique blocks and I'm glad I did. It really made the yellow music notes pop out. Prior to that I'd been a bit disappointed with how those blocks turned out, they looked too busy against the coloured background.
In the border I decided to quilt five lines to represent the music staff, and then quilted in some music notes, which you can see here (again click on the picture for a larger version).
For the label on the back, at my husband's suggestion, I attached it upside down to how I normally would. This way, when the quilt is hanging on the wall and you turn up the bottom corner to see the label, it is right way up. As you can see I also used music staff to write the label (on printable fabric)
puppy and dino quilts. No rest for the wicked?
