 I have never made the pattern, Meadowland, by Then Came June, although it has been wildly popular. Since I have been trying to sew my stash in 2023, I decided this was the year. I had a stack of fabric that I've held on to for years: Quilter's Tweed by Robert Kaufman (poor photo...)

I added a solid gold and started making blocks.

When I posted a progress photo on Instagram/Facebook, our friend, Mike, made this comment, I knew that this quilt was destined to belong to him.

He's a large guy, so the quilt needed a border. I have long eyed a stripe fabric by a company called Fableism, and knew it would be perfect for the other fabrics in the quilt.

I had some fabric that looked like postal service cancellations and since it was going from California to Kansas, and I had yards of it, it seemed like a great choice for backing.

Quilting was done by Darby Myers.

I always enjoy making a quilt even more when I can think about the person who will receive it. Mike is a special guy and I hope he enjoys this one.
