Melon Spikes


Here are the next pieces of the puzzle for my Riviera Star, using the foundations from Judy Neimeyer's Prairie Star. She calls them the "melon spike" units. There are eight in all, but I thought just the six made a nice arrangement too!

One really great thing about Judy's design is that none of the points go all the way out to the seams, so there will be no danger of cutting them off when I sew the pieces together. What an excellent idea!

So far this project has been surprisingly easy and fun, considering how dramatic it looks. Next up will be the "circling geese" units.

  1. How clever! It's a great adaptation - love the effect. I enjoyed looking at the foundation source, such inspired designs.

    1. Thanks, Jillian. There's certainly a lot of temptation on the Quiltworx site. We'll see how this one goes...

  2. Thanks for saying that about the points. That makes it a lot less stressful! I like this arrangement, too.

    1. It makes sense to keep the points short of the seams, doesn't it? I wonder why no one else seems to do it that way! Thanks, Susan. :)
