We are doing a second Meadowland QAL!! So many of you guys asked to do another one because maybe you missed out on it last time or because you'd love to sew along together again. So here we are and I am so excited. I haven't made a Meadowland since the last QAL so I am READY!
The Meadowland Quilt Pattern is BY FAR my best selling pattern to date. It is beginner friendly, FQ friendly and scrap friendly! What more could you want?! I will be sewing a FQ Large Throw that finishes as 20 blocks at 64" x 80" - feel free to make whatever size you'd like.

MEADOWLAND QAL PRIZES
I have decided to do prizes a bit differently this round and I am so excited for it. There will be NO weekly prizes/giveaways this round. Instead, we will be doing a "Best of" Awards at the end of the whole QAL plus there will still be a Grand Prize winner!
The Grand Prize Winner will win FREE long arm quilting from Thread Quilting AND a massive bundle of goodies from Ruby Star Society.
The Best of Awards will be held and announced on Monday March 16th! And each winner will win a $50 gift card to one of my favorite shops (7 different shops will be chosen and gift cards provided by me). Here are the following categories for the Best of Awards:
Best Scrappy Quilt
Best Colorful Quilt
Best Neutral Quilt
Best Quilt in the Wild Photo
Best Pet on a Quilt
Best Child on a Quilt
Best Quilt Photo Fail (we all have these)
**To be considered for all the prizes, you must be actively participating in the QAL and making a NEW Meadowland quilt.**
TCJ + Longarm League
I am partnering with the Longarm League for the Meadowland QAL to provide an amazing resource for all quilters needing longarm services on your completed Meadowland tops. The Longarm League is a community of longarm quilters who learn with and support each other as they build their businesses. Select members of the group will be offering 20% off edge-to-edge quilting services for Meadowland QAL participants in the US and Canada! Meadowland quilt tops must be received by July 31, 2020, to be eligible for the discount.
I will post a list of all longarm quilters participating in the discount by the start of the QAL.
WHAT I WILL BE MAKING
I worked with Fabric Bubb to make a bright fresh spring bundle of mostly basics from Ruby Star Society plus some of their floral prints. It is 20 FQs and I can't wait to mix and match it. Fabric Bubb has also listed this bundle for sale - just choose your background fabric too (I will be using Kona White) and you've got yourself all the fabric you need!
Fabric Bubb also has a ton of beautiful bundles - even other Meadowland ones to choose from. You can't go wrong!
All the other Meadowlands I have made.... yes, I have made TEN before this one. It is a bit insane. Here we go!
My first Meadowland ever may be one of my favorites. It is scrappy and happy and what made me decide to turn this design into a pattern! I will be making a new scrappy version for the QAL.
My second Meadowland and my pattern cover! This one is made out of 1/2 yards in Kona Cotton Solids.
My third Meadowland I used 1/2 yards and made the Smaller Throw 64" x 64".
Up next! My fourth Meadowland. I used a 20 FQ Bundle and even brought this one to NYC for a photoshoot this past summer. Also, I sold this one in November and it was bittersweet to say goodbye.
My fifth Meadowland is the first I made to keep for myself! I made this one with my husband in mind and went for a neutral color scheme. It gets used every day on our couch.
The sixth Meadowland I made as a collaboration with Erin Dollar of Cotton + Flax to use her new line Balboa.
My seventh Meadowland was made for Andover Fabrics Booth at Fall Quilt Market. I used Alison Glass's new Observatory line.
My 8th Meadowland I made for myself! I wanted a fun non classic Christmas quilt that would fit my bed. I made this quilt during a girls weekend in AZ!
My 9th Meadowland was made with my Kona Cotton Designer Palette bundle and it so fun and bright!
The 10th Meadowland I made was for the last QAL this spring. It was scrappy and fun with neutrals to teal/green/blues.
The Meadowland I make for this QAL will be number ELEVEN! I can't believe it.
SEE YOU SOON!
