    Hello everyone
    I am still looking for a classical music themed quilting pattern and music fabrics. I have been everywhere online and on foot. Any help would be appreciated.

    Since you said in your previous post that you were a beginner and wanted
    something simple to start with...may I suggest a Yellow Brick Road? Or
    just a simple 9 patch. There's also disappearing 4 patch or disappearing 9 patch.
    Check the gallery of quilts for more ideas.

    Also, check www.modabakeshop.com

    Hope you can find what you are looking for. But I think it's the fabrics that
    will make the quilt. Look for fabrics with musical theme instead of pattern
    with musical theme unless you want to try your hand at applique. You can
    always add a piano key border to your quilt although it can be a little tricky.
    Ask me how I know. ;-)

    I agree with EasyPeezy that it will be the fabric more than the pattern that will carry out your musical theme. I made a quilt similar to what you're seeking and it was a relatively simple pattern with pinwheels, but I had lovely sheet music fabric that carried my theme. I found several musical prints at Joannes and my local quilt shop. I also found many at online shops.

    Good luck and I hope to see a picture when you finish this quilt. :D

    Try " bearpawquilting.com" They have quite a large selection and even have a new category for music. It takes a minute to find it on their website, but, well worth the time. I got music fabric there last year for my DH's quilt backing and it was beautiful fabric for a great price. I hope this helps.

    I just bought some beautiful music-themed fabrics from favoritefabric.com. Check it out! Clotilde also has a music-themed wall hanging piece.
