Music in the Air

My poor keyboard spends way too much time collecting dust, so I wanted to whip up something rainbow-y and musical to help protect it.  I started by trying to work up some music notes, but they just weren't feeling quite right.  In the end I found myself liking the simpler designs, and the final pattern mimics the black keys on a keyboard by grouping the colored fabrics into alternating twos and threes.

The quilting was done on my long arm and the pattern is called modern stars revisited - it reminds me of notes on a staff.  I like how it ended up musical, but a bit abstract.

The backing is Robert Kaufman All That Jazz with one stripe of color to separate the extra piece of fabric needed to make the back long enough.

This runner finishes at 10.5 x 52".

Linking up with Let's Bee Social.


  1. So cute! I like the implied musical design.

  2. very cute, I love the colors

  3. What a great idea! It never occurred to me that I could make something like this for my husband's keyboard, but now I think I must!

  4. This is so pretty! What a great way to keep your keyboard clear of dust and looking so inviting!

  5. Such a pretty cover and clever too!!
