When I first saw this quilt on the cover of Fons & Porter's magazine, I wasn't crazy about it. I had a couple emails with Thelma at Cupcakes and Daisies and she mentioned possibly making this quilt herself. That was all I needed; if Thelma thinks a pattern is a good one to make, then I'd better get my fabric ready and join her. Besides, years ago I had bought a piece of red fabric with little watermelon seed print. I remembered buying it to make a watermelon quilt, but for the life of me I couldn't find the pattern in my stash. Ever have this happen to you?
By the time I decided to sew this quilt top, the magazine was sold out in my area. I sent a email to my quilt group, and both NancyP and NancyZ brought their copies to the next meeting. What are friends for?!
I love how this turned out; and once it is quilted, it will be one of my favorite summer quilts.
