Elliot's Guitar Quilt
InstructionsI wanted to make my son a quilt for his 18th. I had never done it before. I went to the Quilting Fair 2010 in Melbourne and loved the quilts on display, I liked the ones that had a picture.
You can find this pattern under quilting in the pattern store of Craftsy.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Mod, Retro / Vintage, Funky, Preppy, Casual, Whimsical, Geeky, Rock / Punk, Hipster
Quilting fabric, wading, flannelette backing.
What was your inspiration?
A visit to the Quilt Fair and my son's 18th birthday. He is into music so I wanted to do something with guitars. I HAD NEVER QUILTED OR PATCHWORKED before.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I even finished it. The photo was taken on the loungeroom floor when I was putting it all together with the wadding and backing fabric.
That I made the pattern myself. I had no idea how big it was going to turn out. I have only a normal sewing machine.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Think about the size of your squares and the pattern and multiply and calculate the finished size.
Have a bit of experience, take a big breath and go for it - I did.
