Step 1

You can either piece together a bunch of 2-inch colorful strips or use solid colors for the background, then sew together 2 contrasting fabrics for the guitar, and trace the guitar pattern on the fusible web. Place the pattern on top of the wrong side of the fabric you pieced together making sure to match the midpoint of the guitar on the center seam of the pieced fabric, then give it a nice press to fuse the glue onto the wrong side, and cut out the guitar shape including the small circles.

Step 2

Peel off the paper from the back of the guitar-shaped fabric, then place it on top of the background fabric you pieced together, and make sure that half of it is laying on top of the opposite fabric color. Now, place the 3 dots on either side of the guitar’s handle, then press them nicely to fuse them onto the background, and start sewing around the outside of the guitar shape. You can now use this block on your quilt and finish it however you want.
