Music & Quilting

 

image

As I was sitting in my sewing room working on one of  my quilts, listing to soothing sounds of YouTube music from my computer, I realized how quilting and music seems to go together.  OK, I know this is not a new concept, we all know how music and quilting go together, we all listen to it when we quilt, don’t we.

 

Depending on what I am doing, I love to list to old school sounds, love songs.  The kind of music that you slow danced too.  Then I will switch up to good old rock-n-roll music to get up out of my sit and dance to while I am ironing seams and bindings.  And when you are quilting your quilt the rhythm of the music will just guide your hand and maybe your work.

There is nothing like getting into the grove of piecing and quilting when the house is quite, no one around to distract you, no phones ring off the hook, not having to cook, clean and sew at the same time.  You know what I mean, especial those who have demanding family members.

Last night it was Boys II Men, tonight my chose of music was love songs, The Dells, Delfonics, and Stylistics all the greatest hits. When I start cutting up my binning it was Phil Collins – Sussudio, Do You Remember and Easy Lover.  Dancing and bobbing to the sounds.

What do you listen to when you quilt?

Bowling Quilters & I Got Mail

 

renaLeague summer bowling is now over with, and I must say we had a lot of fun.  I ran into two of my UHURU Quilters Guild buddies, who were also on the league, Antoinette Johnson and Renee Baccus.

 

 

charli and daughter

Last night, who should show up at the bowling ally but another UHURU member Charlie.  She came to support her daughter who is also a member of the league.  I might have to bring up at the next meeting that we start a Quilting bowling league.  We can bowl and sew binding on our quilts.

 

birthday cake

To celebrate everyone’s birthday, we had this beautiful cake make by one of the members.  We also had a live band, that played while we bowled.  It was a lot of dancing to the music and little of bowling, but we did end the night with a lot of fun.  Now it is on to the Bowling Banquet, which will be on 31st August, with Larry Graham as our musical guess.

This is what came in the mail yesterday, the rest of my Rush Hour fabric, at $4.95 a yard.  I still have not received my white commuter fabric which I paid $10.00 year.  Oh well, at least I have enough to make what I plan with it.

I am off to the family reunion today and will be back on Monday to finish off some projects and start on a new one.

Have a great weekend.
