This quilt project idea by Missouri Star on YouTube really caught my attention in an instant because it looks so fun and adorable! I initially thought that making this quilt would be difficult and complicated to make, but it was surprisingly easy and simple, and even beginners can give it a try. This is definitely the best project to keep yourself busy with this weekend.

Step 1

Pick the fabric that you want to use and cut them to size, then stack together the background and pink square, and cut them in half diagonally. Take the green strip and fold it in half, then press it with your fingers, and mark the midpoint, do the same to the triangles. Open them up, then lay the pink triangle and green strip together with their right sides facing, and match the midpoint. Sew them together with a ¼ inch seam allowance, then press them open, and sew the background triangle to the opposite side pressing it open as well.


Step 2

Square it into 5½ inches, then continue to make more of this block, and set them aside. For the next block, take the long pink and green strips, then lay them together with their right sides facing and edges matching, and sew them together with a ¼-inch seam allowance. Press them open, then cut them into 5½-inch tall blocks as shown in the video, and start assembling the blocks together.

Step 3

You can add 2 wedges on each side or make the watermelon slice longer by adding another block at the center. For the seeds, simply iron the fusible to the wrong side of the black fabric, then cut small seed shapes and iron them to the pink fabric of each block. Sew the blocks together, then add more background fabric arranging them however you want, and then add the backing and binding. Finish and quilt it however you want.
