Meadow Blocks Part 2

You might remember back in May I made a quilt from the "Meadow Blocks" pattern by Carlene Westberg, and of course I had to use the same fabrics she did.....I know, I know, I'm a copycat....
I loved the quilt after I got it back and bound it but over the summer our school psychologist and her husband had a fire in their house and they literally lost about everything they own. Well, about 2 weeks ago it dawned on me that she might be in need of a quilt since the nights were getting chilly so I brought 3 of the quilts I had laying around and let her pick one. She naturally picked the pink/girly top to take home and enjoy. So, I thought "what the heck" I had quite a bit of fabric left over from the first top so I pulled it out the other day and with my gimpy arm I
was able to cut it out and assemble it all. I finished it today and just took a picture of it......
And before you ask, yes, I even have the same backing fabric for this one that I used on the first one......

I really love this pattern, you only need 16 fat quarters, 3/4 of a yard for binding and backing, and it's very scrappy friendly as you can see from the above picture.
I'm sure you'll be seeing more quilts on my blog made from it.

So, is everyone enjoying the weather? It's 65 and gorgeous here in NJ!!!

What a sweet thing you did Peggy! I bet she was very appreciative. It's an adorable quilt and how interesting that you had enough fabric (and backing) to make two quilts!!!
