    What kind of music do you listen to while you're doing free motion quilting?

    I like total quiet when I'm in my room. I answer phones and talk to customers all day, so it's peace and quiet for me.

    I like country music first and then everything else.
    I'm not really a TV watcher so it's either music or nothing.

    I quilt with whatever hits my fancy at the time although quilting the last one was a challenge so I kept repeating "I can do this, I can do this...." with no music.

    I always like music with good beat or rhythm. It includes country, pop, r and b, some old rock, and I even like some rap. I love music! Would rather have my IPod on than watch TV.

    I don't longarm but do work at my Bernina listening to CDs (10 of them) that my son has made for me over the years containing songs/singers I love.
    A real mixed bag: old country (no new stuff - too cleaned up) like Haggard, Willie, Waylon, Allison Kraus; some Edith Piaf, Garland; lots of old rock and Motown: Dylan, Clapton, Smokey, Gaye, Elvis, Ronnie Milsap
    Old folk: Weavers, Baez, Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary.
    Some Christmas hymns, some blues and jazz
    That's about 3 CDs worth

    When not in a music mood I have the tv on to baseball if there's a game on or political talking heads

    mostly country and top 40, but at the moment, my head is singing the Kenny Chesney/Jimmy Buffet song Life is Good to me, got my toes in the water and my a** in the sand, not a worry....I'm headed to Destin FL tomorrow to do just that! Anything to beat this TX heat!

    One Sunday morning I was FMQing, and Korsakov's 'Flight of the Bumblebee' came on the radio. I found myself trying to keep up with the pace of the music. I was paying more attention to the music than the quilting, and managed to quilt myself into a corner! I listen to many different types of music. I load up my 10-disc changer and hit the random shuffle button. One song is from Carmen, then next might be Led Zepplin followed by Waylon Jennings. I like the surprise.
