If you live for music then you probably love to style your home in a music theme. Vintage music instruments, musical paintings and lyric quotes are fantastic for getting that music theme in your home. Another great idea for bringing music to your home while you are having a blast is to start making your own music themed quilts. These musical quilts can display musical instruments, music signs and even contain your favorite lyrics. The handmade quilt will look fantastic on your bed or on your wall and is the perfect way to style your home if you want something that is going to last forever.
Why music lovers and musicians should try quilting
Quilting is quite therapeutic. The entire process of quilting keeps your hands busy and stimulates the creative side of your brain. You also get the needed time to process through thoughts and occurrences in your life so you can deal with tough times without feeling bored. When you get bored, you often start feeling depressed, anxious, frustrated and angry. Quilting is the perfect hobby to keep you nice and calm and gives you a break from music so you can focus better when it is time to practice or perform.
Quilting is unique
You get to learn an entirely new skill and you learn how to make wonderful and beautiful one of a kind quilts that only you can make. You could buy a quilt but they are often incredibly expensive and will never have the same sense of value that your handmade quilts will have. When you can make quilts you can also provide friends and family with completely unique gifts.
Get the right gear for quilting
Quilting requires surprisingly little gear. You will need the fabrics and thread for your quilt and you will need a sewing machine for quilters. These sewing machines are perfect for beginner quilters because they are durable and easy to use. Other little items like needles, pins, scissors and so on are also incredibly easy to find because you can simply pop into the closest fabric store and get everything you need instantly.
Make your own outfits
Once you have mastered the skill of quilting, you can also use your quilt sewing machine to make your own outfits. Handmade clothes often last a lot longer than purchased items and the best part about handmade are the fact that no one on earth will be wearing that same top or skirt that you are wearing. You can also create the clothing to suit your body perfectly so you can look and feel fantastic when you are enjoying a band or when you are perhaps rocking on stage in an attempt to become a famous musician.
By becoming a quilter you can say it loud and be proud because your home will be completely different from everyone else’s. You can define your own unique style and you can create unique quilts that will pass down from generation to generation so your name will never be forgotten or so your song’s lyrics that perhaps reflect in the quilt will be remembered forever.
