Several weeks ago I was thinking about making a guitar quilt for David. Then he drove for seven hours to pick up a set of drums he had purchased on ebay. After playing guitar every day of his life for ten years, he became a drummer. His guitars sat gathering dust while I searched for drum fabric. When you type "drum fabric" into google you get some really odd results. Things to make drums out of, or to muffle drums with. If you type "novelty fabric drums" you get Santa with a toy drum in his pack, or a marching band with a drum, or. . . lots of things that weren't what I was looking for. So I typed "novelty fabric music" and found the most beautiful guitar fabric. Of course I already had some guitar fabric that I wasn't going to use since David is a drummer. But then one day I came home and he was playing his guitar. So I bought the beautiful guitar fabric. I had to work fast, because it was 2 1/2 weeks before Christmas. I made the back first, attached the batting, then used my tried and true "quilt as you go" method. It's not heirloom quality, or show quality, but lots of love went into it, and I think he'll like it.
