The blocks are 4" X 10" so the pieces are tiny. The sections are numerous. It all is a challenge because the designer did not offer it in sections, once again, I had to CAREFULLY cut apart the line drawing into sections, and copy them again.
See how the color swirls on the little scrap of orange? Looks good on the guitar.
This from the man who plays a blue guitar, and covets a hand made green one!!
I love how the floral fabric looks on the neck of the blue one.
I chose sparkly blue for the body of it but since it's mottled the colors fell in awkward places when sewing it. Blue was Jan. color
The pattern designer said to add thread for strings. The neck is a quarter inch... so there's no way to add 6 rows of white stitching on that!
It does look different when pieced into the tiny guitar however.
The neck was from the tulips scrap turned sideways.
Love how that came out!
Look up in the left corner... see the white thing? It's a scrap given me by an embroidery loving friend, who apparently did not like how the dove came out, so I fussy cut it into the background.
Detail loving husband saw it immediately! Isn't there a dove song?
So I have caught up with the guitars in color except for the brown (Feb) one.
Who hasn't already seen a brown guitar anyway? lol
I think I am going to piece it today, before I forget the piecing idiosyncrasies for this block.
