011 ~ A Birthday Quilt

A friend who is a musician & singer was turning 74, what a better gift - than to receive a music quilt!
Merlin ♥ L-O-V-E-S ♥ Uncle Derry; of course he had to take a big part in being the quality control inspector.

The Front is a random of 4" squares alternating musical fabrics with solids.

While I was doing the quilting, Out of the blue (hm perhaps it was "on the blue") I decided to write Derry's name on one of the squares on the front, and I was happy with how it turned out.

DH and I are constantly giving him a hard time about his "girlfriends" so when I found this 'girls' fabric,

I knew it had to be the backing fabric on Derry's quilt.


  1. Love this quilt...we have one of those quality control inspectors too. She is laying on top of the quilt the minute it's on the floor to be pinned.

  2. OOh! I love the quilt and the backing fabric. What a fun gift to give!!

  3. What a wonderful gift and very special to personalize it with his name. The backing fabric is hysterical! Perhaps Merlin will want to keep the quilt?
