    This is really nice. I like how you envision the entire composition! The watermelon adds a whimisical touch.
    One day, when I have enough variety of scraps, I will attempt this.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Such a wonderful idea and it turned out beautifully! Great job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    The blocks are 3" squares. Easy to cut and to piece.

    I'm so pleased that you noticed the triangles. Initially, the quilt's name was "Hidden Stars" because those triangles are actually the points on 10 stars that sort of blend in. None of the stars is complete because they're "hidden".

    Watermelon Quilt inspiration

    I can't take credit for the idea -- it's not new. I got the inspiration for the Watermelon Quilt here: http://www.dairybarn.org/quilt/index...page=281#smith You'll find the inspirational quilt at the bottom of the page. Thanks so much for your kind and encouraging comments. I feel all warm and fuzzy...
