Kaylene Maalste – Music

Power of Music

Inspiration: As a child I studied music and music theory, which I enjoyed very much. To me music can inspire and create different moods. It is the latter that inspired my quilt design, I wanted to express the power of music.

My quilt depicts the power of music – it can be bubbly, strong and also calming. I chose black and white fabrics to express the emotions. The technique was abstract log cabin piecing.  I fused different music  symbols on the quilt after straight-line quilting the top with variegated thread.

Music 1

  1. Really powerful, musical artwork!

  2. Very interesting idea and the contrast of black and white really sounds like a powerful crescendo.

  3. Very effective, love the variation of the power of music, at times calm and at others frantic. Lovely.

  4. CHANTAL GUILLERMET

    Using black and white is a very good choice and the contrast between the abstract composition and the music symbols gives a real power to your piece.

  5. Black and white and the log cabin methode, ingredients you do not expect when you think of music, but the way you put them together gives a very nice sound, bravo!
