Guitar Art Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I wanted to do something that was outside of my comfort zone...something difficult, challenging and something that I could include fabric painting on. Wish granted on this one! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a design wall and get LOTS of pins...you'll need them. Also, masking tape was really handy in getting all the little pieces to stay in place when I took them off the design wall so I could iron them ob to the background fabric. (You can iron over masking tape with no ill effects).

What you will need

  • A ton of quilting fabric
  • fusible web
  • jaquard fabric paints
  • metallic thread
  • poly thread
  • clear poly thread.

Thanks for the handy info about ironing masking tape. I did not know!
Sheais7725 answered:
I actually can't take credit for that. I learned about that trick in the Wendy Butler Burns class I took here on Craftsy. But it is SUPER handy!
