This triangle (called Watermelon) I think is often overlooked. It's on the bottom left side corner in the original quilt, as the Jane Stickle quilt is usually displayed. It's made of a tan fabric that has faded.
In Brenda's book this triangle is pictured on the very last page, just before the bibliography. Easy to overlook. Yet it has its own charm and is not too difficult to make. Paper piece several different sections, and applique 4 melons on. If you can do Dad's Plaids then you can do this one.
I am showing this in two colors because I am actually crazy enough to make two quilts! One is reproduction fabrics, for me, and one in double pinks for my daughter.
