In this workshop, music is used to inspire a quilt design. Different genres of music are used to illustrate the design process.
The course is either a 1 hour talk or a half day hands-on workshop.
An example of a quilt made using this technique is the the quilt “La Foule” designed for the quilt challenge “Free to Express” by the International Quilt Convention Africa and first exhibited in September 2013.
This quilt was inspired by the song “La Foule” (“The Crowd”) sung by famed French singer Édith Piaf, released in 1957. The song was composed by Ángel Cabral with lyrics written by Michel Rivgauche.
Elle décrit vibrantly sa romance éphémère dans la foule.
Une vision vêtu de noir, la lumière blanche qui reflète
l’expression libre de ses mains.
