Meadow Quilt Finish

A few weeks ago I was fortunate to attend Lizzie House's Meadow workshop sponsored by my local quilt guild (Rochester Modern Quilt Guild).  It was pleasure to meet Lizzie in person and while the pattern is challenging, having her there to provide tips and tricks made it seem less so.  

I was stalled for a few weeks during the piecing process as I waited for more material for the center of the flowers.  I used a beautiful golden shot cotton that I stole from Francesca's birthday bundle!

I was also stuck for a while on the quiilting.  I knew I wanted  my quilt to be unique so I had to come up with a design that had not been used yet.  I went ahead and loaded the quilt on the Innova and waited for some inspiration and then dove right in.  I used a combination of ruler work and FMQ designs including some floppy feathers.  The texture is really amazing! 
The quilt is backed in a flannel houndstooth print that my husband picked out.  He really has a knack for selecting backing fabric!  It is so soft and shows off the quilting beautifully (almost as pretty as the front!).

  1. What a wonderful opportunity for you. I love this quilt. I hope some day I am lucky enough to get to take this class and make one of these. Yours is beautiful.

    1. Thank you Charlotte! It is definitely one of my favorites.
