There are musical staffs in fabrics 1, 3 and 8, and roses in fabrics 3, 4 and 8.  It was so much fun to select beautiful fabrics using the "best guess" method. My biggest "concern" is how fabrics 7 and 8 are going to be used! I would have bought enough fabric to be able to switch, but my LQS only had a little of the white with red hearts -- decision made.

Please give me an opinion about my fabric choice, too? I've already cut up fabrics 1, 2, 3 and 4 for Part 1 and have started stitching...) Thanks so much!

I think these are going to work up really well.  I especially like the large print rose with musical notes for fabric no. 8 .. so pretty.

Shoshannah,

#7 and #8 will work out fine.  I like how you are mixing the two themes together.

I would love to see fabric 8 as the outer border. I too collect "musical" fabric. Haven't made my musical quilt yet though.

I wish this rose and music fabric had a beige instead of a grey background. It's so pretty, but doesn't look like it will blend well with the rest of the quilt. I'm probably going to replace this #8 with a simpler, dark rose fabric. I wonder if this fabric would look good as the binding? If not, it is too pretty to waste on the back; it may have to wait patiently in my stash for its turn to be featured in another quilt!

You've got me thinking about musicality, maybe when I quilt this one, I should use a musical note motif!
