A Modern Meadow

*sorry for the re-post...I'm working out some issues with my comments...all should be fixed now but let me know if you have any trouble.*

A few months ago, I bought a destash bundle from Angela at Fussy Cut. In addition to all the yardage, she included lots of pre-cut squares and rectangles. There were a lot of really great prints but my favorites, by far, were the Modern Meadow pieces.

Do you know how much I love Modern Meadow? I'm not sure I've ever talked about it before. I liked it when it first came out but I only bought a few prints when they went on sale. They sat on my shelf for a long time before I truly saw them. I felt like Mr. Darcy noticing Elizabeth...who went from not handsome enough to tempt him to one of the handsomest women of his acquaintance.

I'm fondest of the blue/green prints and already made a quilt top inspired by them. Unfortunately, I don't have many of the pink/green prints in my stash. Here's where Angela comes in...that very special box contained scraps in the pink/green colorway! I wanted to smash all those prints together, like a field of wildflowers. So I did:

This quilt is mine, all mine! Or at least it will be when I find a flannel for the back. Can anyone help me? Do you know of any flannel that will match this particular shade of green or pink? I'm at a loss!

Anyway, I'd love to hear about your Elizabeth Bennet fabric. You know, the one you grew to love despite all adversity?

  2. JoAnns has a ton of flannels that would probably match the back of your quilt. It is adorable!
