Name That Tune – 2004 & 2011

Leave a comment

Make a quilt based on the title of a piece of music that is recognizable to most people.  The quilt need not portray the content of the song or musical work, just its title. Size: 36” by 58”  give or take 1 inch. Quilts must hang vertically, NOT horizontally. The quilt must contain the shape of at least one musical symbol using any method such as appliqué, piecing, embellishment or quilting on the front. The quilt must have a bound edge which measures less than 1/2 inch. Quilts should not have a “picture frame border”.  (A picture frame border is a border made of one fabric placed on all 4 sides of the quilt like a mat in a picture frame).

The title of the piece of music should be on the label and credit given to the composer and lyricist.  No lyrics from the music should appear on the quilt.

A few years later members who had not previously made a Name That Tune quilt were invited to make one – at half the size: 18″ x 24″.
