This is a very special quilt. It was made for Peter.....well, a fundraiser for Peter. Peter is battling cancer....Stage IV cancer....of the head and neck. This is the same kind of cancer that I battled five years ago.
I think it was on the very same day that I decided to make a quilt for his raffle that I opened up one of my old Fons & Porter magazines to find a quilt that I had bookmarked as one I wanted to make one day. The quilt was called Beautiful Voices, using the Beautiful Voices collection by Gail Kessler for Andover Fabrics. Some of the fabrics were no longer available. Fortunately, I was able to find the piano keys fabric and the off white musical note fabric. Then my husband went to the fabric store with me to pick out the rest, as this was special to him, too --- he and Peter have been very good friends for 30+ years.
I used over 300 pins because of all the different sections and the 54" panels. Crazy!!!
I was really happy with the way it turned out, and loved how it looked blowing in the breeze (my hubby is the magic behind the quilt there).
