i was so happy to make this quilt for my nephew & his new bride until i heard her color choice. she wanted teal, maroon, light yellow & tan ... in batiks. yuck. i hated it until i got the teal binding on. with the scalloped edges it turn out pretty nice. i quilted their names in the melon slices just so that couldn't re-gift the quilt. i piece & quilt on my viking sapphire 850.
