    Thanks saravincent.
    I also made this wallhanging from scraps. It's my first fusible applique & first attempt at free arm quilting after hours of practice. I haven't put the guitar strings on yet because I'm not quite sure which marking pencil I should use. Do you have any recommendations?

    Your wall hanging is absolutely marvelous! I am a music fanatic and am going to have to make me one of those! I just wish I had that wonderful fabric you used! I think I need to make a guitar hanging also. What an inspiration your projects have been.
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    How about a 3D effect, using silver cording? Almost like you can actually strumm it.

    Those are fabulous Fancy Foot! I like saravincent's idea of using the silver cording for the guitar strings - you could couch them down in a couple places if you needed to.
    Keep sharing your pics - we love to ooooohhhh & aaaahhhh!!!! :D

    I love the colors...really a nice piece. I haven't mastered paper piecing so I don't much like doing it but your work is outstanding.
