Hearing a piece of music on WXXI's Classical 91.5 inspired quilting artist Caris Burton to create a new work. I love the connections she made with this music and its composer, and I'm glad that she took some time to write up this story to share here on the WXXI blog. Read Caris's story below, and you can see two music inspired quilts by Caris Burton on display at the Genessee Valley Quilt Club Show at RIT May 31st through June 2nd.
A few WXXI listeners wrote in to comment about the recording, including Dave, who wrote: â€śI'd like to see it in action to better appreciate the technique & coordination - all the details.â€ť I'm posting my response here too for anyone else who might be interested.ď»ż

Isnâ€™t it fun to talk about music? Iâ€™m always happy to chat (we can start a shouting match have a civil discussion over on Twitter or Facebook if youâ€™d like).
