I wanted to start with a simple project - an easy one for me to illustrate and one that would be fun and rewarding for a beginner. I chose this brick stitch watermelon. The entire watermelon (except for the base row and loop) can be stitched with the decreasing brick stitch.
Creating the instructions took a more time than I anticipated so I am not sure when I will tackle the next pattern with a path. For more information about the Watermelon pattern, you can view it here...
