Karlee made this quilt, Shimmering Symphony, in 2011 specifically for the "Create Your Style With Swarovski Elements” design contest and it won 1st place. She was pretty excited about it and writes, "Not only did I win $3,500 in cash, but I also won a brand new sewing machine as well as $3000 worth of Swarovski Crystals! It was such a fun competition and even landed me a spread in my local newspaper!"

I initially saw this quilt on Pinterest and was so impressed! My husband is a pianist and wanted me to make it, but I had no idea how to do that! Thankfully I saw her on The Quilt Show talking w/Alex and she was going to do a class on Facebook. I signed up and took her class and the piece is now hanging in his piano room. He loves it!

My husband, a music teacher, was just blown away! Very impressed with the bass and alto clefs.

Love your musical quilt above. Also you and your designs were wonderful on the TQS show. Keep creating as you are a really talented artist.
