Watermelon Quilt

Recently I took a fast and fun class at Country Quilts in Clearwater to make this picnic quilt.  It was so much fun to get a quilt top done in one day (and I was determined to get it done before I went home !)
Quilted by Marlene at Lucky Sew and Sew.  I really think this is the fastest I have ever made a quilt - started and finished in 2 weeks !  I made it for my daughter Theresa, who loves watermelons.
And as always  a couple of pictures of Amelie, who has to inspect everything which is so tiring :-)

It looks so delicious! One day for the quilt top and 2 weeks for all? I can't believe it. You are so great, Heather!

Thanks Hiromi ! I am never fast about anything,especially since I almost always do handwork, so occasionally it is nice to finish a fast sewing machine project !

Und toll, dass du ihn so schnell fertigstellen konntest!
