Summer Fun Quilt Block Mania

Welcome to Quilt Block Mania! I'm so excited to be apart of this blog hop. In case you haven't noticed there are a bunch of awesome designers taking part!

As you know Quilt Block Mania runs July through September with one block per month. I was trying to think of a way to tie in the unique themes and color schemes into one congruent design. While on vacation I saw a turquoise gingham tablecloth and it sparked my idea. Why not create a gingham like background then applique something on the table specific to the theme. The next question was what would you find on a kitchen table during the summer? A slice of watermelon of course! Out came the graph paper and I sketched my idea.

When I got home from vacation I was looking at a quilting websites and there sat on the home page a slice of watermelon that was "almost" identical to my idea.

So back to the drawing board... next thought was ice cream. Not that an ice cream cone would be sitting on the table, but it worked for all intent and purpose. So that my quilting friends, is how this design came to be.
