Watermelon String

This quilt was started in a class taught by Diane Rode Schneck and has a muslin foundation. Having made some string quilts with random fabric choices, I wanted to organize the colors this time.

It was hotter than blazes that July and all I could think of was cool watermelon colors. I did buy green yardage to complete the quilt but had reds to spare. The quilt is 92 inches square.

Thanks for letting me share, Brenda.

I have a thing about buttons. Wouldn't a lot of little black buttons look like seeds???

Just can't beat green & red. Love your string pattern in the border. Very nice!

Thanks for the warm welcome, y'all.
Lori, I never thought of buttons but they would be a perfect addition.

Red and green...
There's a Dutch saying: "Rood en groen is boerenfatsoen", learning us that red and green don't match well, but your string quilt is absolutely stunning!
Cheers,

Jeanneke.
