Watermelon Baby – Calendar Winner for 2011

Inspired by  photo sent to me by my Sweetheart months ago,  it was my first thought when I saw the contest.  The sky and ground are patchwork with hidden quilt blocks in both.  The baby is appliqued with his hair thread painted. The watermelon is made of silk and padded with felt, seeds are glass beads.  You can also see a couple lady bugs crawling around too.  The kisker is his shoes – craft foam.  Don't they look like real shoes?
