Another Modern Meadow Quilt :)

My friend Meghan visited a few months back while I was working on this quilt for Roxanne. She fell in love with the simple pattern and asked if I'd make one for her, so we dug through my fabric and settled on a Modern Meadow bundle from Fabricworm. She likes the muted and cozy look of the Shabby Chic style, so the sweet colors and florals were perfect for her.

By the way...I wish I could do this with everyone I make a quilt for! It's so fun digging through fabrics with someone, having them admire your carefully curated stash, and getting both your creative juices flowing! My floor and cabinet were a mess afterward, but it was too much fun making the mess for me to regret it! ;) Laughing, yanking out fabric in a flash of inspiration, unfolding, comparing, wadding, "what about this"ing, tossing aside.

You can read more about the backstory and see the fabrics I'll be using for the backing and binding here.

And everyone say thanks to my beloved hubby and model, Ray. He quit playing an intense game of Plants vs. Zombies to help me out with my "photo shoot" ;)

  2. thank you! i'm really excited about getting this one finished and in the mail. i can't wait for her to see it for the first time and start using it in her new apartment!!!

    haha...he was nice about helping this time, but occasionally i'll get the "too much fabric buying" and "too much time quilting" grumbles :)

  4. I really like the pattern that the blocks created -- super cool!

    On the computer screen I liked Modern Meadow, but not enough to buy it. When I saw this at our last meeting, it zoomed to the top of my "to buy" list. Perhaps I can sneak another fabric bundle into the house....? :)

  5. @mab - i wrote this in another comment somewhere, but Quilthome.com has all their Modern Meadow fabric 25% off this week. If I had the funds right now, I'd buy a disgusting amount of it!
