"Somewhere Over the Rainbow," 6" x 6", made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 11, Challenge 6: Vibrant and Vivacious, Mar. 2020 in Yellow Springs, Ohio
Challenge recap for "Vibrant and Vivacious":
Your finished project should be bright.
Using color is not much of a challenge for me, most of my pieces have a lot of color (and the few that don't don't have any colors at all and are just neutrals).
I'd just finished reading a book where one of the central themes was a piano and I was thinking about music notes and realized that if I colored in the lines of a music staff I could use most of the colors of the rainbow.
So I just needed an appropriate song that have five to nine notes and none of them were flats or sharps. Then it came to me: Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
The background, rainbow, and solid notes are raw-edge fusible applique and the note stems and the half notes (the hollow ones) are couched yarn.
To finish it, I wrapped it around a 6" x 6" canvas frame.
