In 2017 I began playing with the “note” shapes that took center stage on these colorful music-themed quilts. I really enjoy stacking them like a rock cairn but without following the laws of physics! A giant note (or rock depending on how you see it) might be balanced on top of a teeny, tiny note. A stack of notes in different sizes might be stacked so that each one teeters on top of the next, which makes you wonder when the entire thing is going to come crashing down. It just makes me smile.
