~~ Links to purchase ‘Go Strum It’ is at the bottom of this page ~~
I purchased this artwork last year for my great nephew and to make my niece a wall quilt to hang in her cubicle at work. She is in a position where she trains people who have no experience in this job. So you know she is challenged everyday. Plus both her husband and son are accomplished guitarist. So it all fits!
Her son Will and his wife like the basic colors gray, black, and white as do many young people these days.
This one is for Will!
The background is filled with treble clef’s
The outside border is a row of quarter notes
These are 2 color designs with the background sewing first. Followed by the satin stitch details
This is Will’s Quilt
This one is for my niece – I figured I should make the message a little more subtle since the meaning will be a bit different at her job – smiles!
These are the notions I used to make a wall quilt banner
- Background fabric – I use pima cotton broadcloth
- Pellon shirTailor – 1 layer
- Quilter’s Dream 80/20 fusible batting
- Soft medium weight tear away stabilizer
- Madeira Rayon embroidery threads – colors of choice
- Wonderfil #80 prewound bobbins
- Organ size 12 top stitch needle

YES! I WANNA GO STRUM IT WITH MY 8X10 GUITAR

Those guitars are awesome! I can tell you that yes, things like that would be nice sellers. A number of years back, I went to the Sewing and Quilt Expo near Chicago and bought a really neat looking quilt wall hanging pattern of a guitar. Don’t ask if I’ve ever made it. 🙁 I’ll make it easy – nope not one stitch.
This is the one I bought http://www.fasturn.net/my-les-paul/ (I am not affiliated with them in any way so that was not an advertisement at all) (Laura, feel free to delete that link if it’s not allowed)
My son had decided he would learn guitar so he got a guitar and was doing pretty good. He continued for a few years but I think once he went from the University after graduating, and on to Law School, he was too busy to continue.
Do you sell all sizes of a design for a single purchase, or are they always needing to be purchased individually if we want to have all sizes you are selling of something?
I appreciate your feedback. Love the guitar pattern.
We decided to sell them individually because thy are so intricate and the stitch count is so high.
I didn’t imagine anyone would want them all with the sizes being so close to each other.
