Els Mommers – Music
Inspiration: I love string instruments and play a lot of this music while working in my studio.
I started with transfer painting on lutrador, made some designs of string instruments on paper and cut them from the lutrador. These shapes are applied to the commercial background fabric by means of raw edge applique.
I then painted piano keys on white cotton. This cotton was placed under the violin and provided with a shadow to add some depth.
In my stash I found some fabric with musical notes which is added under the instruments.
At last I copied some silhouettes from musicians with wind instruments from the internet and raw edge appliquéd them on top. The quilt is machine- and hand-quilted and faced.
