3 Completed Music Quilts

I finished the three music quilts, created for Daughter's three music mentors. I used all the same fabrics but made three different patterns.
I used tall triangles for this patchwork-like quilt.
Soli Deo Gloria I
It was quilted with an all over squiggly design, with an occasional flower.

This quilt is a disappearing nine-patch with a piano key border. For an orderly look, I used the same nine fabrics in the same order when making the nine patch blocks.
Soli Deo Gloria II

For the quilting motif, I made up a fleur de lies pattern for each block. The border has a fluid blank music staff.

For the third quilt I used the pattern "Stardom" by Wendy Sheppard, found in the book Annie's Row Quilts.
Soli Deo Gloria III

Easy custom quilting enhanced the star block, and the surrounding triangles were quilted with a loopy design.
The borders have the same fluid blank music staff, while the sashing contains a wavy line.

My longarm friend did a fabulous job, and she did all three with quick turnaround!

Each one of those quilts is beautiful Julie! The third really is so different from any pattern I've seen before. I Love them all and so will the three mentors!

All three are gorgeous quilts... But I must say how much I LOVE that triangle quilt, Julie! Nice work!
