A Sampler of Guitars A Sampler of Guitars
By: Debbie Lange Quilting,
Indiana, USA

For my nephew,Dominick. I designed the quilt on graph paper leaving the body of the guitars open to incorporate traditional quilt blocks with a 6, 8 or 9 grid. The necks were flying geese or 4 patches. After completing with a white background it was too bright so I stained /sponged with a tea wash.

    No, I am sorry to say, I have not started my sewing for Christmas this season. I am afraid that my recent surgery for a torn right rotator cuff is bringing my sewing to a halt. Six weeks of recovery and therapy will make it impossible to get any done for this year BUT I am able to make plans for next year!!!
