Primitive Watermelon Finished

Machine quilted and the green bushed cotton was used for the backing and binding..  Notice those weeds are still there in the background.
I found this the other day, could be inspiration for a primitive quilt.  It was tucked away in a box of Jim's belongings that I had yet to go thru.  A drawing from him when he was oh so young.  His name written at the top left corner.  I love the houses with their TV antennas bent over from the rain.

    I just love Jim's picture, how lovely it would be to turn it into a quilt block, can't wait to see it.

  2. I think Jim's drawing would make a wonderful primitive quilt. Perhaps as a wall hanging or even a table runner, and a very nice memento for you. Didn't notice the weeds, just the watermelon.

    That picture is so cute and wonderful that he kept things like that, definitely something to work into a quilt.
