What materials did you use?
cotton fabrics - largely what I considered "the bottom of the barrel" donated fabrics that had been given to me 10-15 years ago and I'm trying to finally get out of my house.
It turned out very well. The pieced border really did make the difference. I know exactly what you mean by trying to use up old fabrics. It's hard enough to figure out what to do with my own let alone something that someone else didn't want.
Only you could make the bottom of the heap look like top of the line. This is a fun art piece. My favorite fruit is watermelon--got any more hunks of the watermelon fabric? I love it.
LOL. No, none left. I deliberately used up every last square inch of it so I woouldn't have to see it again. That's why I had to make additional side borders of a fabric that didn't go on the top and bottom. Ordinarily if I do a central panel I make it in the same proportions as what I need for my final size.
