(7) Name: 'Quilting : Music Sign, Notes quarter, Paper Piecing
Music Sign, Notes quarter, Paper Piecing Music Sign, Scale of Quarter, Notes

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Paper piecing

Pattern Description:

This is the second of a series of Music related paper piecing blocks!

Nothing is random when it comes to write music.
Using good, clear notation is really important and this series of patterns tries to achieve that :)
Spaces, positions, proportions of all the elements have been built using a 10 inches tall block
as a reference, and using the staff shown in the last page of this pattern.
However quilting is not all about good music notation :)
so even if each note is supposed to be followed by a space proportional to its duration, in this pattern
I provide a smaller space (called minimum space) that is ok for piecing the note with others
but it uses less fabric. If you are interested just in basic notes, then you can use that smaller space,
if you are interested in writing good music, then use the correct spacing :) :)

The image above is NOT using the good notation: it is used to show all the notes in the pattern.
Each note has its own pattern, and they differ only in the space above/below it.
The Treble Clef is NOT included in this pattern, but it is available for free in my Pattern Store.
The Staff (horizontal lines) is NOT part of the pattern, you can embroider it or use it as quilting lines.
The names of the notes are NOT part of the pattern, but are used to reference the single pattern.
