    This is a quilt made for my DS who just invented new guitar picks which went over very well at a dealer show in Nashville. The material was donated to our quilt group and i was lucky enough to find enough material to complete this lap quilt. On the label I let my son know that he could cover up with this one being my DDL wouldn't let him use the last one I made for them because it was hand pieced and quilted.
    I forgot to take a picture of the back to show the quilting.I'm self taught but felt that the quilting on this one was pretty good.

    this quilt came out beautifully! very nice job on it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    My GD plays the guitar and I know that she would love this quilt. It's super. What does your DDL do with the other quilt? Maybe to her it's an heirloom.

    Very nice quilt. I think I have or had some of that guitar fabric-can't remember what I was going to do with it and now you have given me an idea.

    Very nicely done! I love all of the musical instruments. And your quilting is awesome! I am able to zoom in on it using my Kindle, but on my computer, the resolution is lost when I enlarge the photo. You should post another photo with a close up of the quilting. Great job!

    It is an heirloom to her, she doesn't want anything to happen to it. I love giving her quilts because she appreciates every one. I did a Christmas tree wall hanging for them last year and she cried when she saw it. To her it was an old fashion tree and she loved it. It's worth all of the work when you know how much they love what you do for them.
