Another Top Waiting to be quilted

Here is another quilt top that I pieced in Las Vegas. It is difficult to tell from the photo but all the fabric is watermelon related. The green is watermelon rind, the red is watermelon flesh with seeds and of course the other is watermelon slices.

Robin and I saw several quilts made from this pattern at Nancy's Quilt shop. Even though it is a very simple quilt, we purchased the pattern and fabric from Nancy. We had them pieced in a couple of hours.

Today, I picked up some backing fabric so this quilt is now ready to go to the waiting area in hopes of being quilted some day. I have more of the rind fabric set aside for the binding. This will be a great picnic quilt - not as if we actually go on picnics but if we ever do, we will be ready.

I also thought this would make a nice wedding present, along with a picnic basket. The pattern is so simple that I am going to suggest that the guild use it for community service quilts. Easy but still very nice. All you need is a yard or so of 3 coordinating fabrics.
