Summer has arrived! We’re looking forward to long hot days by the pool, with a glass of iced tea in one hand, and a slice of juicy watermelon in the other!
That slice of refreshing melon is the inspiration for our newest Secret Message pattern!
Add a splash of juicy goodness to your summer with this fun wall-hanging or table topper showing a slice of melon with a secret message hidden in the seeds. Hang it on your wall or use it as a table topper, and then see if guests to your home can decode the secret message!

About The Pattern
This project finishes at 52″ x 19″, and is designed with advanced beginners in mind. The majority of this piece is straight piecing, with mitering for the rind borders. The pattern includes step-by-step photos to help you with each step of the cutting and piecing process. Make it with a single fabric for the watermelon flesh, or use a variety of reds for a scrappy look!
