Design Wall Monday–June 23, 2014

I’m still playing with Dresden’s.  This time it’s a small wall hanging for my front door.  The inspiration for the watermelon theme came from seeing something similar on someone else's blog.  Unfortunately, I don’t remember who, or I’d give them credit. 


It’s only about 20 inches square but I think it’s turning out real cute.


Thanks to Frances Moore, I at least attempted to make hookie hooks.  Without her encouragement I wouldn’t even have the nerve to try.  I know I still need to practice but they’re coming along.  Thank you Frances.  And would you believe this straight quilting through the watermelon seeds was done with my free-motion foot.  Again, thanks to Frances for convincing me it can be done. 


I still need to add the binding and a sleeve but then it will be ready to hang up on my front door. 

To see what others are working on, check out Judy’s Patchwork Times Blog.




  1. Very cute! I gave away (donated) my watermelon quilt and have been feeling the need for another one. Little is good!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
