I think it’s safe to say at this point that Meadowland is the most prolific pattern I’ve come across! After pattern testing for Then Came June, I ended up made it three different ways this year and plan to make one more before the year is done! This pattern even spurred me on to start offering curated fat quarter bundles so that you can make one just like it if you want! Cutting up fabric for all of you has become such a super fun way to connect with the quilty community and I’m so glad everyone pushed me to make the leap!
Here are the three Meadowland Quilts (that link goes to Meghan’s Shop if you want the pattern!) I’ve made so far…
Here’s a peek at some of the bundles up in the shop!
There will be a bundle coming for this floral version too that uses Leah Duncan Poppy print and a bunch of really yummy solids.
You may have noticed that in this floral Meadowland I changed the way it was constructed to keep the floral pattern in full squares! To use full uncut squares in your background fabrics take these steps….
1. The pattern will have you put each block together one by one. When you reach this step you can put together your center block “row” of one geese, your middle 9 patch, and second geese.
2. Do NOT put together your top and bottom rows of each block.
3. When you have all your geese and all your center 9 patches constructed, cut your background fabric blocks (fewer of them… count out how many based on which size you’re making) at 8.5” instead of 4.5” (and any background fabric for the very edge of the quilt will be 8.5” x 4.5”).
4. Lay everything out until you’re happy with placement and construct entire top row by row.
5. Left to right you’ll put a background square, then combine two geese from the blocks above and below, attach background to double geese. Let me know if you’re walking through this process and this didn’t make sense!
