The Fruits of Summer



Ahh--don't ya love summer and all it's sweet, fresh produce? I sure do...I'm thoroughly enjoying going down the road a few miles and picking up sweet corn and tomatoes that were picked that morning. And the watermelon this year has been the BEST! And of course, I had to share the fruits of some of my efforts..a watermelon quilt. Actually, it was done a couple of years ago...but I'm not quite ready to show what I've been working on all summer. But be prepared..I've been busy! Finishing lots of quilt tops, finishing quilts (some have been hanging around for 7 years, waiting to be quilted!),making class samples, painting my studio, cleaning, reorganizing, purging and whew! I'm tired.

You certainly have been busy working on so many things. This watermelon quilt is great. Very summery. It just makes me smile, and want to dig into the refrigerator for another slice.

What a cute, cute quilt! I can't wait to see the others that you've been working on. :>

So cute!!!
How did you do the seeds -- I thought they might be buttons but on closer inspection I see they are quilted over.

That is the sweetest thing! What a brilliant design - spicing up a classic. It's the perfect summer quilt!

What an imaginative use of a log cabin block, I just love it! It's wonderfully summery fresh.

Love the watermelon. My granddaughter's favorite dress ever was the one I made with a watermelon skirt and green top. So very summer!

From the Best of Black Mountain Quilts right?? I love that book. I did the autumn log cabin from the same book and the 9 patch quilt with the flowers.

Your quilt looks great!

What a lovely quilt. It is a long time since I did any Log Cabin. Maybe it will be a good thing to do with all my scraps :-)

That is definitely one of the cutest quilts for summer time that I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing.
