Last time I talked about some of the special design inspiration I found recently at QuiltCon 2016 – a quilting convention in Pasadena. In addition to the events and products a quilter would get excited about, there was plenty there for art-lovers like me. And what is a more unifying form of art than music? Musicians are the artists we most often feel connected to and claim as our own. These tributes to David Bowie, George Michael and Prince blew me away.

Every Little Hungry Schoolgirl’s Pride & Joy by Rebecca Burnett
Young Prince (Charming) by Stacie Dolin
I thought of this quilter when I heard Prince passed away last week. I remember studying the detail when I was standing in front of it a few weeks ago, and thinking I could see her love for the Purple One in every stitch.
