    We made it!! Grad is Saturday and the quilt is done. We had it quilted by a longarm quilter and she did a fabulous job putting musical notes interspersed with lightening zigzags. She used variegated thread to reflect the colours in the top and added stitching detail (strings, frets, knobs) to the guitar in black thread. I tried a new binding method and it worked so well it's what I plan to use from now on. Overall happy with the whole thing :)

    musical notes of all sizes and types

    Wow retro sixties cool! I remember that generation of rockers and clothing very well.... LoL! This is so rockin' fantastic groovy. I love the quilting on it, I bet she had a good time choosing the notes and lightening strikes for it.

    Someone had posted a link to a video by Leah Day demonstrating how to machine stitch the whole binding. I used her method of joining the two ends together and it worked beautifully. I'd always struggled with that part of the binding so this will be used again. We sewed to the back by hand.

    Here's the link again. It was new to me
