    Guitar quilt pattern

    I am looking for a guitar quilt pattern to make for my grandson as a college graduation gift. I am thinking applique. I have checked online, but did not find anything appealing. Any ideas?

          Here's a link that shows several ideas.

                You might as well resign yourself to making all of them another quilt and it's has to represent their hobby too or there will be hurt feelings. So get ready to FART!

                    This reminds me again how fabric and quilting can make such a difference-I looked at the first link kind of went "Meh" looked at the craftsy one and went "that's cool" basically same design but the quilting and colour scheme made one so much more appealing to me. That is why I need to remind myself that some of the blocks I see would look totally different in the fabric/colours I like. Even if I am not keen on someone elses colour choices I should be open to experimenting with all kinds of patterns.

                      I thought the same thing when I saw the colors on the pattern, but after I saw the one on Craftsy done in another colorway, I started to envision these guitars in batiks and all sorts of colors and fabrics! It's so great that we have the internet with so many quilters sharing their works and ideas!

                          I like that! It would be nice in a nine patch pizzaz pattern.

                            This is the quilt I made for my husband. I traced around his guitar for the applique pattern.

                              Lori Holt Of Bee In My Bonnet has a guitar quilt pattern using her Gracie Girl line. Google her blog and she even modpodged a real guitar with fabric for her daughter's room. For music folks it probably wrecked the sound, but it looks adorable.
