Thread Name: Help: quilting songs
Subject: RE: Help: quilting songs
I'm not sure exactly what the music will be used for, but if it's background music for a film involving quilts...I would suggest music that fits the mood and topic of the designs being discussed, or just songs that were popular during the time and place a pattern was used. I'm thinking various songs that pioneer women heard, or songs with various state names, or historical events that occurred during a time period given. When you mentioned Jay and Molly I of course thought of Ken Burns' specials which seem to use background music that fits the mood and/or time period of the topic as opposed to having words about the topic. Fiddle tunes sound like a great choice regardless of the name of the song or the words to the song.
