I don't remember what I was searching for last summer when I found this. It about knocked my socks off and I've been following Ahhh...Quilting ever since. Recently she put out a call for pattern testers and I volunteered. She picked me and look what I got to make!
I think she chose me because I have very little experience with applique, which is how this is made.
It was fun to pull out some of my dad's old tools for tracing and cutting the pattern pieces.
Just one mistake here but luckily I noticed before I cut out all those little green wedges. (I incorrectly adhered them to the RIGHT side of the fabric.)
I had a hard time photographing these colors for some reason. I guess I need to Google that now. Anyway, the greens go together much better than this picture shows and how perfect is that backing for a watermelon?
The pattern is now available on Craftsy. Click here and give it a try!
Here's to summertime!
