Four Patch Scrap Squares Quilt



I like to play recordings while I make my quilts. I played some Bach while I was pin-basting this quilt, and some Jimi Hendrix while I did my free-motion quilting. Jimi was maybe the best guitar player that ever lived--his recording of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" is absolutely wonderful. I could name a bunch of other great guitar players that I love, such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Montoya, Julian Bream, Santana, and of course, Charo--who is a wonderful guitar player when she's not wiggling and acting funny. Who's your favorite?
Anyhow--back to the basics--I just love how this quilt came out. I'm very proud of it. I also have done some quilting on another quilt that I kind of made in the background--it's a printed-fabric version of my "Art" quilt. I have to do the binding today.

I am trying a new-to-me method of basting a quilt and it is going well. My fingers don't hurt like when I pin baste. It is Sharon Schamber's method. I am liking it!

This turned out great! You're right to be proud of it.

I'd have to say Jimi Hendrix is my favorite guitar player. :- )

We're talking about music to sew by on Liberated Quilters at the moment. It depends on my mood.

I spray baste, so no music for me when concentrating on that.
I listen to the radio most of the time here at the cottage as there is a station that plays it all. From oldies to new and it suits me fine.
Yes, Jimi was wonderful.
