Alexandria's Meadowland

Are you familiar with my friend Lizzie's's work? Lizzie Clark designs beautiful floral fabric for Sweet Bee Designs and I was lucky enough to make a quilt with her newest line, Alexandria. It's so cute with both small and large florals plus some really fun supporting prints. I tried to pick just one favorite but there were several. How am I supposed to choose between teal and purple?

I knew right away that Alexandria would be perfect for Then Came June's Meadowland pattern. The light Flower Garden print was just right for the background and I added a few solids to round out the number of fat quarters needed. The blocks in this pattern are big so with just 12 of them the quilt is still a good lap size at 48 x 64".

I think it turned out pretty great if I do say so myself and just about everyone who saw me working on this wanted it for themselves so I guess they would agree. I was able to get this quilted (a simple 2" grid) and bound already so it's time for me to take it out and enjoy it!

This is almost the last stop on this blog tour so be sure to go back and see all of the beautiful projects made so far if you missed them. There is everything from quilts to bags, pillows, and more!
