I was debating whether or not to quilt the melons in this quilt - most people I asked said yes - that's what I really thought too but there are 64 of them.
I tried a bunch of different ideas and finally settled on something simple that filled the space, was easy to mark, and echoed the other designs. A lot of people online used a lot of pebbles in this quilt and that's just not in my repertoire with my current machine.
I made myself another template and got to work. These went together really quickly and I have no issues quilting the melons.

The templates I made and used for this quilt have been simple but very effective and I'm really happy with how they turned out.
