Sparlkling Pink Guitar

It's HOT pink, really
It make look orange here but this is a bright lovely pink guitar done for the RSC hot pink for July scrap challenge.
The neck is a Jinny Beyer border print scrap. The body of the guitar was a scrap strip about 3" X 10" of a bright mottled pink.

I had other scraps that would have been terrific on an applique guitar  but this paper pieced pattern has lots of acute angles which make any fabric pattern look confused so it's best to stick to something akin to solid.

The background is a lovely faint pink/purple

All from the scrap bin.
There are pink scraps in the garbage can and I used pink scraps
The bin is more overflowing than when I started...

So who plays a hot pink guitar? A confident man? A 12 year old girl who always wanted to play Pink Floyd? A flamenco musician? 

I would love one like this...
      maybe with a little rhinestone flamingo on it???

Here are the colorful guitars so far...

  1. In 1965 I painted my first husband's bass guitar a beautiful enamel white. On the trip home from the gig the car flipped, the guitar flew out the window, the car landed on top of it and ground it into the pavement. He lived, the guitar didn't.

  3. I'm always fascinated with your paper-pieced blocks - the guitars, the tvs, the sofas, plus all the ones you did last year. The precision mixed with your great eye for color results in perfect little works of art!

  23. Scraps must multiply when we are not in there keeping an eye on them! Your guitars are really beginning to add up (like the scraps) but wow! they look great. I'm glad I don't have to choose just one; they are all so cool. How large is the finished block? I guess I'm wondering how many guitars will fit on your project.

  24. Love all the guitars, especially the pink! And I too, struggle to get the color to photograph well. Don't know what it is about hot pink. Thanks for linking up at Midweek Makers
