    Guitar Quilt

    I would like to THANK Mollie Sue for posting a few pictures of her "organized cleaned sewing room". In viewing those pictures she had a quilt of guitars on the wall and sooooo I emailed her and asked what pattern it was etc.. Well it is a free pattern by Pat Sloan called Bebop Guitars and here is my take on it.. it still needs to be finished but at least it is all pieced.

    It is a Christmas present and it is just perfect..

    Thanks for looking and once again , Thanks MollieSue!

    That's fantastic! Did you use fusible applique? I love the fabric you used for the side of the guitar.

    What a great quilt! The material on the sides of the guitars is just perfect! I can't imagine how hard you must have searched for it! You did a great job!

    I agree about the effect on the side of the guitars. That's a fine quilt. I am certain the person who gets it will say it is perfect too.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. Believe it or not, I did not step out of the house for my fabric choices. Just went shopping in my own stash. The material used for the side of the guitar was left overs from fall placemats that I did a while back.
    I am trying really hard NOT to go outside of my stash for any quilt this next year. We will see what happens???

    Have a great day!

    Awesome! How neat that you found your quilt pattern in Mollie Sue's organization topic. You did a great job with it - the shading and highlights along the sides of the guitar's is wonderful!
