    I am having a new great grandson and my grand daughter and her husband love music and she'd like me to use that as a them for the new baby quilt. There isn't really much fabric out there that says music and baby. There is a black with lots of bright colored music symbols, how in the world can I put that in a baby quilt. There is some nice music themed fabric but not for a baby quilt. Any ideas??? There is also some fabric that resembles a keyboard I could use for a border. I'm more a copy gal, not too original.

    I tend not to make baby quilts because they grow fast and develop their own interests. I would use music fabrics and make the quilt you know they will like and use. The baby will use it for years to come.

    I have looked at this fabric but the ones that were age appropriate is out of stock. I have googled it all. I'm beginning to think I just need a pattern that I could use the black fabric in and still look like a baby quilt.

    Baby eyes much prefer back,white and bright color contrast. Much more stimulating too than pastels.

    You could also not worry about the fabric and instead try to find a pattern with music-related applique
