Rhythm & Blues

I am pretty eclectic when it comes to my music choice. There are very few genres that I don't like. When my friends come to sew they comment on it. They can't believe the variety that plays while we sew. Everything from Broadway show stoppers to Country. Throw in a little R&B, jazz, big band, and indie, well you get the idea. I like music. 

I'm also the mother of three 20 something boys. One of which is a drummer in a blues band. So when I saw the new batik line Yuki by Debbie Maddy for Moda I instantly had knew I had to do something with it.
I played around with the majestic mountain block,one of my favorites to play with. After setting it running diagonal through my quilt. I added a chain block with varying sizes of squares and my Rhythm & Blues quilt was born. 
I think my little drummer boy will like it.

  11. Though I'm not usually a fan of the spiky-looking majestic mountains block, or even the color blue, this quilt turns that around--it's gorgeous! Maybe a simplified tutorial, pretty please? I'd definitely make this one. Even my two blue-loving but quilt-indifferent grown sons would surely love it too.

  13. I had to really look twice to see the underlying "mountains" blocks. You did a great job taking a traditional block and really making it special! This is a really cool, dynamic quilt :)

  15. It really does look musical somehow. I think it's in the rhythms of the squares and the jagged diagonals. Lots of movement.
