The guitar wall hanging comes from one of my first quilt pattern designs for Fabric Freedom. It was designed as a quilt, using 4″ finished size squares, but I have made it with 2″ finished size squares to make it into a wall hanging instead. This way it ends up being 26″ square, a much more manageable size for a wall hanging.
The fabric options for the guitar wall hanging
The fabric range is called Musical Affair and it comes in three different colour selections. Basically I have selected out the darkest fabrics to make the shape of the guitar and then used the lighter fabrics fairly randomly in the background. The background placements show up better in the red option shown on the right.
The quilt pattern can only really be given as a row by row list of placements, so rather than me repeating the list here it makes more sense for me to direct you to the Fabric Freedom site. My designs are the ones towards the bottom of the page.
Just change all the measurements to 2.1/2″ or 2.7/8″ squares and use a 1.1/2″ border if you want to make the guitar wall hanging.
Quilting the guitar wall hanging
As it’s a completed design, I can actually show you the way that I quilted it as well. I wanted to keep the quilting simple, so I have used straight lines about 1″ apart along the length of the guitar itself. The background was a meander quilting.
As usually happens, you can see the quilting better on the back of the quilt shown on the right.
I am not stocking all the fabrics in the Musical Affair range – just the green colour range. You can see them here.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I hope to see you again soon.
