Modern Meadow Quilt-Finished

It's true, I'm finally finished with my custom ordered Modern Meadow Quilt and I'm so pleased with it! I just love these fabrics from Joel Dewberry's line. 

About this Quilt
Fabric: Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow and Robert Kaufman's Kona Cotton in Chocolate
Size: approx. 48" x 60"
Pattern: Descending Squares
Quilting: Machine Quilted in a Step Pattern

The back of the quilt features the Dogwood Bloom print in this beautiful turquoise as well as small scraps and selvages of some of the other fabrics in the line. The back was partially inspired by the back of Angela's Kaleidoscope Quilt over at Fussy Cut (I love her colorful quilt and her blog!)

I used a couple of the selvages to label the quilt and to add a little bit of interest to the back blocks. I love how they turned out and definitely plan to use more selvages in my future quilts. 

This quilt is now settling into its new home in Ohio.


  1. What a special quilt for a baby! Congratulations on completing it--that must be such a sense of accomplishment. Can't wait to see your next projects--I really marvel at this skill that you have.

  2. Thanks! But this quilt is actually for a special mother-to-be. Perhaps if she's nice, she'll share with her little one to come :)
