Free Patterns Friday: Opus One

Two of my three daughters took years of music lessons. One played the flute (and competed all the way to the state level). The oldest played piano from the time she was in the first grade until college. You can bet I spent a lot of time waiting in my car while they had their 45 minute lessons each week!

Music has always been freely played in my home. We love it!

I designed Opus One for Windham Fabrics in 2018. You may have seen this already. I did a blog post in February 2017 about another quilt like this. But it's worth it to share again, right?

Opus One for Windham Fabrics
I also made a REAL Opus One quilt. I plan on adding borders using fat quarters. Pieced, of course! And I have the perfect young man to gift it to. He is a talented musician who leads the youth music at my church. Shhhh! Don't tell him.

Musical Stars using Type Band fabrics
If you click on that Type Band link, you'll not only see the fabrics but can download another FREE pattern by Casey York. It looks like this:

Blue Note pattern
Can you believe those appliqué instruments? A guitar, sax, trumpet, drumsticks. Big wow!

So, now you have TWO music patterns for your quilting pleasure. And they're FREE! Hope you enjoy making your own quilts for those musical geniuses in your life.


  1. Hi Debby! I only have one second-cousin that plays the piano (very well). She actually just graduated from high school and got a scholarship based on her ability. Who knew they even had scholarships for piano playing. Anyway, I'll bet she would love either one of these patterns made into a quilt for her. Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. My husband volunteers at a music venue in Duluth. One of these would look great in the lobby. Now to be able to find the fabric....

  3. Being a musician and having most of this material will certainly give me a new quilt when I have time to make it. Thanks for the free pattern. I see some that are cute but take a lot of different fabric or a lot of cutting of fabric. This may be one that I can get done this year.

  4. I am also a musician and am always looking for music themed fabric and quilt patterns. Thanks for the free pattern.
