Back in March I had the opportunity to take Lizzy House's Meadow Quilt workshop at Intown Quilters in Atlanta, Georgia.
This is me on my way to the workshop. I haven't taken a quilt class since my very first beginner's quilting class five years ago! I was a little bit excited :)
Lizzy House was very approachable. She explained every detail of the block construction and how to put the quilt together into a top.
Here's my practice block! I think it turned out great for my first one.

Here is the color inspiration for my version...
After much deliberation, I finally settled on a plan.
And then I changed it of course! I replaced the peach with a grass green color.
We were out at Brian's grandparents' farm the other night and I thought it would be a great time to take pictures of the finished quilt top.
I thought I would try to get a picture of my Meadow Quilt in front of a meadow!
It's about 72" by 84".
I think I will try a combination of machine quilting and hand quilting on this one. I want to hand quilt the white petals and green eyes, and machine quilt the rest. I've never hand quilted a large quilt, and this could be a good way to get my feet wet.
I couldn't resist one random pic of the kids enjoying their time at Happiness Hills Farm :)
Thanks for stopping by!
