Sandra was a member of the Sewjourners Quilt Guild. She loved collecting black memorabilia, and often reflected that passion in her quilts. Her quilt Watermelon Man was such a quilt.

Her fresh point of view will be missed in the Atlanta quilting community.

Just in time for the beginning of summer, the featured quilt of the week in the May 30, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week with a Quilt newsletter is called Watermelon, and it was created by Sandra Holliday.
Sandra is an avid collector of black memorabilia, and now it seems she has begun a collection of watermelon quilts. She also made a quilt called Watermelon Man that was featured in the newsletter.

The focus fabric in this quilt depicts watermelon slices. The bright greens and black complement the watermelon fabric in a traditional block setting.
Watermelon was part of the Sewjourners Quilt Guild exhibit that ended May 31 at the Southwest Arts Center, 915 New Hope Drive, Atlanta, GA.
