My Musical Rag Quilt

Don't forget to check out my giveaway!

After seeing all of the awesome quilts out there in blogland, I decided to make another. My awesome niece Kate had a piano recital this weekend (her brother, Sam, who is also awesome, also had one - but I am not very apt at homemaking gifts for 16 year old boys, lol), and so I wanted to make her a little gift. She's a really great piano player - she really wows me with how good she is for 12 years old.

Anyway, I had some musical fabric, so I wanted to make her a rag quilt with it. It was black and white, so I used some other black and white fabrics I had to make squares, along with some pink to add just a pop of color. (Note: Kate does not like pink, but I didn't have green, and I was trying to use all materials that I had!) I just hoped that she would like it!

Well, here it is all done. I had a lot of fun making it, and hopefully she will have fun using it. ;)

Complete with a musical note ;) 

The back has a strip of very fuzzy pink.

Thanks for visiting, and have a GREAT week!
