Default Fabric Panels

I am wanting to find a fabric panel of a single guitar. Does anyone know of any quilt shops that have them?
I have a nephew that has been in a wheelchair since birth and he is now 29 years old and severely handicapped. I want to make him a little lap quilt that he can use in his wheelchair. And his most favorite thing in the world other then his mom and dad are guitars and music.

I don't have a clue on where to search for them. Thanks in advanced.

Try some of the fabric search engines. You'll get more options if you search using 'guitar' than if you search using 'guitar panel'.

http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/

The only panel I found was this one and each separate block is only 4¼" square, but there are lots of non-panel fabrics with guitars on them that you might be able to use.

Thank you Ghostrider. I hadn't thought about just putting in guitar. I think it was because I wanted a panel but now that you mention it...I might do fabric instead of a panel. Thanks again

This isn't a panel, but if you're interested, here is a tutorial for an applique guitar quilt that's nice. You could make your own panel ;-)

I bought a fabric with guitars on it at Walmart. On the selvage is "CP37055 Acoustic Guitars Dan Morris for Springs Creative Products group". Here is the fabric for sale on eBay:

Robbi Joy Eklow is well known for her guitar quilt patterns. She uses raw edged fused appliqué. Thses two are still being sold.

If you can't find a guitar fabric you like, you might consider one of these patterns from Another by Anita:

Song of the South (treble clef): http://anotherbyanita.com/shop/patte...-of-the-south/
Unsung Melody (floating staff): http://anotherbyanita.com/shop/patterns/unsung-melody/
Totally Composed (musical symbols): http://anotherbyanita.com/shop/new-d...ally-composed/

These are all raw edge applique patterns. My husband is a guitarist, and I made the Song of the South for him. I took the picture before I did the quilting. It is a wall hanging, but could easily be used for the center panel of a lap quilt.

how about using guitar fabric and appliqueing a guitar on. It's a big fairly easy shape to do.
