Another one that was made SOOOOO simple by 'That Quilt'!! I do wonder in the end how many pieces this cuts down by doing a square this way. and I do think in the end it uses a lot more material!! But I have to say for someone like me the simpler the better!! I can tell you this took two and a half episodes of Law and Order (that includes cutting, tracing, ironing and sewing) and I can assure you it would have been double that time if I had to sew on eight melons!!
I decided since my oops on the other one with the 'bamboo' I did intentionally make the inside go one way and the outside go the other direction!! I know it is a minor thing, but to me it is those things that put your personality into something like this! And after all I am VERY off center and a LOT querky!! hehe
Now if only I can work on not stitching so very tightly!! I am heavy handed in everything I do!! I crochet VERy tightly!! I decided I cannot knit because my tention was so tight that i was having a difficult time picking it up! And when playing my instrument the instructor who put together the wedding asked if I was mad at my Flute!! LOL I am working on lightening up!! But I do not forsee this happening any time soon!! Even as I type the poor keyboard is asking why I am so angry with it!!
Maybe two more today while my Honeyman is on shift!!

  1. It turned out wonderful! For such small blocks it is amazing the time it takes to make them, but worth it in the end.
