Guitar hero

I'm glad to be done with this one.

  guitar quilt
 The piecing was simple enough (I used the Big Braid pattern from Jeni/In Color Order). The color palette is based off of the guitar print--Groovy Guitar in Boy by Michael Miller. Then I added in lots of coordinating prints. But the quilting almost did me in. For some reason, I had lots of tension problems, which resulted in some thread breakage, ripped out stitches, and (more than) a few curse words. BUT. It's done.


I'm very pleased with the binding! I had this Kumari Garden print in my stash, and it's just about perfect.

I have another finished quilt that I need to show you. Back soon!

It's really cute Katie! Love the guitars. Glad you got the tension issues sorted out, machine problems are the worst.

I have always liked that guitar print, and I love the way you used it and the colors you put with it.
