Every once in a while Rachel will hold these mosaic contests and this is my first time joining in the fun. Rachel provides the theme and offers up some gorgeous photos for inspiration. This time around the theme is Cool Melon. You can make up to 2 mosaics, each must be made up of 9 fabrics, and the mosaic should be evocative of melons.
I love melons. Watermelon, cantaloupe, casaba, crenshaw, honeydew, and so many more! I think my absolute favorite is orange-fleshed honeydew. Have you ever had it? It's so yummy! I can't find it where I live though. Maybe it's just a West Coast thing. Another funky one is yellow-fleshed watermelon. Say what? I had never heard of it until a visit to the Midwest last summer.
Here is my first mosaic: Cool Melon - Solids
