Have you ever seen fabric that you KNEW you needed? This was Amy Sinibaldi's new Sonata line for me. I love the hand drawn florals, instruments, windows, and yes, even the three dots that I used as my background fabric. This line was beautifully put together, and to top it off, it was inspired by Beethoven, who I love.
When I designed my quilt for this fabric, I wanted to show the hand drawn images. I wanted the windows and the edelweiss blue florals to be seen. I knew I needed to make a pattern with large enough blocks to do this. Here is my mock-up.
As you can see, I stuck with traditional flying geese and half square triangles, but made them extra large. This gave a simple, clean, modern feel, while also showing off Amy's designs.
I also decided to use the instrument fabric for the backing. It was a fun contrast to the front, and you can see a glimpse of it here.
And as it turned out, my sewing machine decided to act up on me, so I hand quilted instead of machine quilting the top. I think my machine knew what it was doing, because I love the heirloom look that hand quilting added to this! You can see some of the hand quilting details here, on the pink stars and blue triangles. You might also be able to see a bit in the center on the background fabric.
I still haven't decided on a name for this quilt, so if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them! The pattern is in the works, and should be ready in a few months.
