Soulful Cello – Quilt Pattern

Cello - Paper Piecing Quilt Pattern

I am working on a music-themed wall hanging and instruments on it keep on changing!  Since I play the violin, that’s what started it all.  I drafted this violin quilt pattern and stitched the block a few weeks ago –



After going back and forth I figured what else could accompany a violin better than a Soulful Cello.  It was very much like the violin, but without the chin rest and much larger.  I didn’t include the bow in the cello quilt pattern because no matter where I placed it, it was interfering with the harmony of the block.  So at the end I decided to leave it out. The cello is the largest paper piecing block I have made until today – a 10″ x 20″ block.  I had to work with some large pieces, so pins were a huge help on this one.

Just like the violin,  there is very little lining up on this cello pattern.  There is also an alternate to paper piecing the f-holes.  These two things made life a lot easier when sewing the block.

Soulful Cello quilt pattern is available on Craftsy and Etsy shop.

Now I am working on a piano as the next block.
Have a creative day!
