Of course my first thought was "Bars of Music"!
This is a giant log cabin block - using all music themed fabrics. I called it "Piano Bar"
Since we were allowed 2 entries, I decided to do a second one. I had a FQ pack of modern fabrics I had purchased a couple years ago in Florida. My goal was to use them.....in bars. I wanted them to look woven which took a bit of planning and I wanted some white space to do more quilting. In the end I had about 2 inches left of each of the fabrics and about a 5 x 7 inch piece of the white. Of course that would partly be because I had to redo a couple of ideas. My other theme I adapted to go with "bars" was diamonds - 60 inch angle diamonds.
I learned a few things which is always good for a challenge. Since both were original, I had to draft my own pattern ideas. Some of the fabric was loosely woven and raveled, so I had to figure some ways to applique and make sure the edges didn't fray. Quilting on the white was a challenge as I don't like to mark on my quilts. I thought I could do the center with a walking foot......not true......free motion was a little more difficult.
