Watermelon Season

This is a watermelon quilt I made a few years is a needlelove pattern.  My husband is the best I know at picking a good watermelon....and he didn't let us down when he cut in to chilled melon last night.  What a treat!
My daughter and her husband left for Ohio today to close on a home they have never seen.....they bought their home via internet pictures etc.......its not quite as scarry as it sounds, as I have a son living in Ohio and he checked everything out for them.  Last eve. Abbie made the comment that she purchased a house she's never seen and in a state she's never visited.

Todays quote,  "I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."  -John Burroughs  ......I would add - and all the quilts I want to make.

  1. Beautiful quilt Norma. I love the pillow too.

  2. Can you tell me what pattern you used for the watermelon quilt?

  3. Lisa...It was a Needle Love pattern in a book with the quilt on the front. It was a fun quilt to make and it comes out every summer.
