Your quilt and quilting is beautiful! I just discovered this pattern and find it is not available. Does anyone know how or where I can get one? Thanks!

Great info about the construcion of this quilt. I have been searching for this Groovy Guitars pattern, Robbi Eklow & Quilting Arts do not carry it anymore. Anyone know where I can buy it?

Peg, This is a wonderful quilt and gift! I do the same thing you do - I consider washing my quilts as the last step in the process. I want people to know exactly what they are getting!

Hi PegL, You do such beautiful work, and it all looks so professional. Your mitered corners look so precise. I am inspired.

The quilt is beautiful and made perfectly, so the couple should be pleased, if not give him a punch, ha! Grandmothers would be so proud of you, and I know they were but did not know how smart you would become in their loved art.

That is an awesome quilt! I bet someone would pay big money for that. It's truly art.

Nothing I'll ever make (94 pieces, good grief) but it looks great. I'm sure they will love it.

This is much better than the original picture!! My Mom, before she had Alzheimer's, would make a quilt for family members weddings and birthdays to match what they were interested in. She also made baby quilts for all the new babies at her church. Sadly, she could never get me to catch the quilting bug but I love the devotion and dedication others give to it. The last quilt she made me is my favorite treasure.

What an incredibly special gift. And 94 separate pieces to trace -- that's a loving aunt! Thank you so much for taking the time to share the process with us.

That's the nicest quilt I've seen in a long time, and I know it will be treasured by the recipient. You are right about the borders-the guitars definitely need to be the star attraction.

WOW! Love your quilt! I have only ventured into the world of rag quilts, yours is a piece of art, created by loving hands!

This is so great! Love the design and the colors you chose. What an incredible gift. Making something like that must really make your soul sing. To steal Joanne's phrase, I, too, am an avid non-quilter and am mystified by the quilt process. Your behind-the-scenes photos and description were fascinating.

That is incredible. So gorgeous. Thanks for taking us "behind the scenes". What a fascinating read.

Get outta town! This is fabulous! Great review! Congrats to your nephew and his new wife. What more can I say?

You've made a stunning piece of art. The applique work is beautiful and I love the FMQ you've done. You've inspired me to get that baby quilt done sooner rather than later as the baby's due soon.

To an avid non-quilter, this is truly an amazing project. Since quilting is somewhat of a mystery to me, I enjoyed reading your details and seeing the photos of the entire process. The recipients will surely enjoy this awesome creation for years to come, but I wonder if they'll realize how much time, talent and devotion went into it.
