The Olympics are on! Expect lots of applique.

Cut a 6"x 6" square out of background fabric.
Using a disappearing or washable marker, mark the positions of all the melons on the right side of the fabric.

Using your preferred applique method, applique the melons into position.
I like to use "freezer paper inside" for melons.
Trim the block to 5" x 5".

Gorgeous!!! I think I prefer freezer paper inside for melons too... it just makes placement soooo much easier.

totally agree with you! When the winter olympics are on I tend to be sitting in front of the tv.

I like the Freezer paper too! You might get me to do this quilt yet....

Lovely block!

No freezer paper for me. I learned how to applique these shapes without using any paper.

With the time difference of 9 hours, I don’t think it’s wise to watch the Olympics at night and applique at the same time...LOL!
