Melon Slices

Well, this quilt is finished. I imagine you are glad as I've shown it enough lately and it's time to move onto something new.


Okay, maybe it's not totally finished. I still have to add a hanging sleeve and label. But the front side is finished. I've officially named it Melon Slices. It measures 34" x 34". I am really happy with the fabric I chose for the binding. A black and white stripe. Here is a close up:



In other news....today the first Creative Cue word was announced. You can read all about it here. I already have an idea of what I will sketch for this cue. Now to just get my sketchbook in hand. It'll be here soon, I had to have a new one that would open flat for scanning. A big thank you to my personal sketchbook maker.

Also, Three Creative Studios has announced a new monthly free project called Technique of the Month. There will be prizes too. You can find out more about this here.

  3. Great quilt! I bet the bright colors are very helpful when there's only snow outside.
