Coiled watermelon bowl

LUCKY ME....I found some watermelon rind fabric in the remnants last week at one of the local fabric stores.  A half yard...YES.  Today was the day to attempt my first watermelon bowl. After a few messages back and forth with my friend Margaret, who has been making these as part of her repertoire, I dug through my stash to see what I could find.  I very light green was perfect but I wanted another transition green and was striking out since most of the greens I have in my stash tend towards  lime or olive...not right for this project.  The green tone on tone dot was the closest I could get.  Fortunately I found 2 watermelon colored scrapes decision...seeds or no seeds.   I got out my sharpie and drew a few seeds on the plainer red and now it ws magic time!  To find out if I was going to like this or not, I decided on a smallish bowl and left the green dot out.  

I am VERY pleased with the result and can see why Margaret enjoys making these...they are adorable!  I can't wait to make a few more.  Perhaps an oval one next time.yes
