Happy Melon Quilt: A Photo Finish

Well, it took eight months, but I am happy to report that the quilt I made as part of the Sew Happy quilt-a-long is done. And not only is it finished, but it has a name too!

Introducing the Happy Melon Quilt...

I love everything about this quilt: the bright happy colours, the straight line quilting, the scrappy border and the wonderful crinkliness that emerged after washing.

Fabric: Grand Bazaar by Patty Young, Moda Grunge, Outfoxed Jewels and some random stash.
Finished size: 64 x 51
Quilting: organic vertical straight lines and horizontal lines on the top and bottom.

I'll be linking up with Manic Monday tomorrow.
