As I was sitting in my sewing room working on one of my quilts, listing to soothing sounds of YouTube music from my computer, I realized how quilting and music seems to go together. OK, I know this is not a new concept, we all know how music and quilting go together, we all listen to it when we quilt, don’t we.
Depending on what I am doing, I love to list to old school sounds, love songs. The kind of music that you slow danced too. Then I will switch up to good old rock-n-roll music to get up out of my sit and dance to while I am ironing seams and bindings. And when you are quilting your quilt the rhythm of the music will just guide your hand and maybe your work.
There is nothing like getting into the grove of piecing and quilting when the house is quite, no one around to distract you, no phones ring off the hook, not having to cook, clean and sew at the same time. You know what I mean, especial those who have demanding family members.
Last night it was Boys II Men, tonight my chose of music was love songs, The Dells, Delfonics, and Stylistics all the greatest hits. When I start cutting up my binning it was Phil Collins – Sussudio, Do You Remember and Easy Lover. Dancing and bobbing to the sounds.
What do you listen to when you quilt?
