Greetje Hein – Music

It sounds like music

Inspiration: Our grandson likes to make noise on everything. For him it sounds like music.

When our grandson is playing he can wonder about all the different sound things create. He especially likes to make noise on the pots and pans of big sisters kitchen.

For the background of this quilts I used a hand dyed fabric. I planned to make a kind of pencil drawing/sketch. On the computer I “translated” a photo into a drawing and used this as a guide. I also printed the same sketch on a piece of the same hand dyed fabric and used only the head part. The sketch part is free motion quilted with a dark grey rayon thread.

  1. Great take on the theme, Greetje! And love to colours of your music 🙂

  2. It sure sounds like music, I can hear it!

  3. A great idea, I can just imagine the music, probably best heard in small doses! beautiful stitching.


    original idea for the interpretation of music ! With his smiling face we can imagine how happy he is to hear his own music …
    How did you transfer your design on the fabric ? any special method or simply by tracing it ?

  5. Great concept, I remember those noisy sounds from my children. Great idea to sketch the body with his face.Cheers
