I found the pieced, vintage melon wedges in Grandma's steamer trunk. They were foundation pieced onto newspaper, dated 1949-1950, although the fabrics date earlier. I used the wedges plus images of her Rhode Island Reds to make this wall-hanging in memory of her. If you look on the back, you will see a photo of Grandma and Grandpa on their farm in Chowchilla...plus printed images of some of the newsprint pieces.
