It’s the summer 2017 trend that just keeps giving – we’re overjoyed (yes, we do get this excited about quilts) to see the quilting world awash with watermelons this summer. Here’s a few of our faves…
Watermelons! 6 ways to sew the look
1. Tutti Frutti fun
2. Suzy Quilts – free quilt pattern
Her Mod Melons free quilt pattern is possibly as happy-making as any quilt could be… and it’s free! We’re excited to announce that Suzi Quilts will be joining the Love Patchwork & Quilting team this Autumn (eeeek!) – with her own column (watch out for her debut issue in issue 54). You can find the instructions for Suzy’s Mod Melons quilt over on her blog: suzyquilts.com
3. Thirst-quenching patchwork pattern
Is it possible to have more fun piecing fabric than with this Melon Wedge Quilt Block PDF pattern? Clever fabric choices can change the look to suit your style. It’s designed & available from Modern Quilting by B.
4. More fabric fun
5 Pretty-up your pins!
With this Watermelon Pin Cushion Kit (above) from The Make Arcade
The third fabric in this round up (because, let’s face it, we can never have enough fabric) has a more-muted colour palette but without losing the wow factor: we heart this Cute Watermelon Pattern 100% combed cotton fabric, available from Zazzle.
