August Wall Hanging

Watermelon and crows?  Well, yeah, it kind of grows on you.

When I first started on this I thought about changing this pattern (by Joined at the Hip,) but then I decided it was so different, I would go ahead and use it for August.Now that I have all those watermelon seeds appliqued (all 30 of them!) I like it!
It was this darned crow that I was not sure about...


Once again, I searched through my scraps and used up more of my reds and some odd greens.  I really like how using what you have makes the applique' unique.  If I were to go shopping for fat quarters for this, I would likely have chosen something very different; but, my scrap stash is -ahem- bulging and it's all about using it up, right?

That turned out really cute and using stash fabric is like making it for free (well sort of)!
