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.
