🌾Meadowland 🌾Number 2--Rainbow Colors!

"This is the pattern that no one makes just once." ~Meghan of Then Came June, about her Meadowland quilt pattern. I couldn't make just one! Here's my second Meadowland quilt:

Meadowland is the hottest quilt pattern in the quilt world right now. Meghan, attributes it's success to the following points: 

~it's fat quarter friendly, or half-yards or scraps
~it's a mix-and-match pattern--all fabrics are equal and evenly distributed
~no sashing, no borders
~large blocks (16") = more focus on the fabrics and faster finish

Quilt Info:
Pattern: Meadowland by Then Came June
Size: 96" X 96"
Batting: Quilter's Dream Batting, Wool
Thread: Glide, White
Quilting: Random Clams
Interesting Facts: ~I did a scrappy rainbow binding
~listen to Meghan talk about her Meadowland quilt pattern on the American Patchwork & Quilting podcast, here. It starts at 19:27.

You can see my first Meadowland quilt here. And yes, there will be a third and fourth Meadowland in my future! This pattern is too much quilt fun! If you haven't made one yet, jump on the wagon!!! 

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. Another lovely finish. I'm currently working on one that I couldn't stop at just one. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.

  2. Completely beautiful! I've seen so many Meadowland quilts lately ... must have gone viral. I love the bright colors on yours!

  3. What a great finish!! It's always nice to have patterns that are so versatile to use up our stash. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  4. I can see why you love this pattern! This one turned out really bright and pretty. Love the "random clams," too :)

  5. Whatever you do turns out so nicely, Nancy, and this is no exception. Love the bright, happy colors!

  6. Oh that is a cool quilt - and the quilting is wonderful on it!

  7. This is beautiful! I love the colors!

  8. What a beauty. I love this quilt and the cheerful colors. The quilting you chose adds such nice texture.

  9. That is so pretty! I love both of your Meadowland quilts - I can see why you've enjoyed making them!

  10. I love your choice of fabrics, soft yet bright. It looks like a really great pattern.

  11. Love the quilt but the quilting is wonderful! Did you do that free hand?

    Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  12. What a great design! It would work well as a block swap or group quilt, too. (I'm curious about the "hottest pattern" statement, though: is that based on purchases?)

    1. Meghan released Meadowland last year in June and it is already her best selling pattern. She hosted a Sew Along last spring and 3,000+ quilters participated, making 4,000+ quilts! That's because a lot of the participants made 2, 3 and some even 4 different versions. She said in the podcast that her followers requested another SAL next spring, and she's leaning toward doing it again. You can see many Meadowland quilts on Instagram, #MeadowlandQuilt, and on Pinterest. Also, the interviewer on the podcast I linked is a longarm quilter and she said it's by far her most commonly quilted client quilt, so much so that she's lost track of how many she's quilted.

  13. Beauty! I love this quilt in all its versions--I bought the pattern too, and plan a Christmas version. Another favorite pattern of hers is Sidewalk Chalk.

  14. Boy that pattern checks off a lot of boxes. This one looks fabulous. And wow! a 16" block seems like a brilliant way to get a quilt made fairly quickly. Question: Is Random Clams a pantograph? I like how it looks and might want to add it to my computerized machine if it is available that way.

  15. Lovely color scheme in a lovely quilt with lovely quilting!

  16. Your quilt is so pretty! and I can certainly see how it could be very addictive. Thank you for linking up to the Peacock Party.

  17. Beautiful! Certainly calls my name!

  18. Yep gotta go check out that pattern;) It is a beautiful quilt and quilting.

  19. Beautiful! Love the color scheme and the clam quilting.
