Quilt: Watermelon Shoofly


Description:  This is a very bright and fun picnic quilt. It has everything but the ants. I had so much fun decided on the colors that go together. During class you will learn to make "Shoofly blocks" and watermelon that looks good enough to eat. I don't use rick rack very often, but it adds to this quilt
