Green Guitar

A green guitar! The RSC color is evergreen for May. I chose Emerald for my birthstone however, and this is my green guitar 
Pattern source is paper panache
there was much decision making required of Mr. Not afraid of color. He was called in to consult on the scraps used this week as he's the guitarist in the home. 



We auditioned many scraps, the pattern in them, the shade differences and although many were called, three were chosen. 
The base of the guitar is sparkling mottled green, rich as malachite. 
 we nearly chose the fabric on the neck for the base but the pattern was pretty wild for quiet Drew who says his favorite guitar is the blue one because...
It's what he's used to!

  7. Your paper pieced blocks are always so cute. The guitars are just genius! Last year your cows and flamingos were adorable too.

  27. Mr NAOC's blue guitar is gorgeous. I like your emerald one, though. Well, no, I like them all. Mr. NAOC is a great consultant. The secret to being a good consultant is to be able to make good suggestions even when they are not your personal choice.
