Meadowland Quilt (+tutorial) & New Bundles

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…

It was so much fun to make Meadowland two ways with the Black White & Blue Bundles!  Each uses an Essex yarn-dye linen as the background fabric… one in “flax” and one in “black“.

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!

  1. Thanks for this explanation! I think this will make perfect sense once I take the final sheet of the pattern (showing the layout) and draw lines showing how you pieced it. I can see how it’s done in rows from your description, but marking them on the diagram in the pattern will help. I thought you had turned the blocks on point and pieced them this way, which could also be done, but I prefer the rows as you describe, to avoid sewing on the bias. Thanks so much for this explanation! It is a great design, and one that will look very different depending on the fabrics and placement. I love all three of yours!
