Jazz Pizzazz



The inspiration for this quilt was jazz music.  One of the characteristics of jazz is that individual players, with their distinctive style and tone, come together with syncopation and rhythmic patterns, and pizzazz … jazz happens!

Materials:  My own hand-dyed cotton and commercially printed cotton fabric; raw-edge appliquéd, machine quilted by the artist on a home sewing machine.

Size:  43” W x 58” H
