New Meadowbloom Patterns!

Meadowbloom Fabric by April Rosenthal for Moda
Since Meadowbloom is shipping soon, I thought I should introduce you to my new patterns! I have 4 new patterns this time, and I honestly can’t decide which I love most! I can’t wait to show them to you, and hear which YOU love best! (Warning: Picture OVERLOAD ahead! ;)

First up, Johnny Jump Up!

Johnny-Jump-Up-Paper-Pattern

I adore this quilt, it was the first one I designed for this group. Jacob said I was crazy when I showed him, that it was beautiful but “a lot of work!” Meadowbloom Finals-20But everything that’s worth something takes a bit of work, right, and I happen to know you quilters have mad skills. So I’m not worried. You’ve got this. :) Meadowbloom Finals-17Regular piecing or paper piecing options are both included in the pattern. Depending on if you choose Low Volume or Scrappy, it can be made with Layer Cake Squares or Fat Eighths. Meadowbloom Finals-13I love how different the two versions look, just by changing up the alternating squares. Meadowbloom Finals-12The scrappy quilt, I quilted with a cool angled  x pattern, the texture is awesome. Meadowbloom Finals-10I quilted the low volume quilt with a fun spirals and circles pattern. Meadowbloom Finals-9It’s such a contrast to the angles and straight lines of the quilt itself. Meadowbloom Finals-8I can’t wait to see your versions!

Next is Building Blocks!

Of course, because I’ve been thinking about baby for the last year, my next pattern is a great car seat cover and swaddler. Introducing Cuddly Car Seat! Cuddly-Car-Seat-Pattern-FinalI adore this pattern because it’s so DARN useful! Of course, the car seat cover is useful for keeping little tiny ones out of the sun, away from prying eyes, and giving a little quiet place for a nap. And, who can resist a Jelly Roll project? The swaddler is awesome because it has holes in it so it can be a permanent blanket in the car seat. This is SO nice for windy of chilly weather! Simply buckle in that little sweetheart, and then wrap the blanket around them. They’re safely buckled, and also nice and warm. Gotta love that.

Solstice-Paper-PatternFinally, there’s Solstice!

  1. WOW and WOW!!! Meadowbloom is beautiful, fun, and I want it!!! The patterns are all ‘swoon-worthy’! Great job, April!!!

  2. Every piece of that fabric is a lovely breath of fresh air. So, so beautiful. And those patterns…I swear…are your best yet. Congratulations, again. Ohhhh, how you tempt me to become a quilter.

  3. Dear Ms. Rosenthal, I purchased your solstice pattern with fabric from Craftsy because my 27 year old daughter loved the fabrics and pattern. I have been re-reading the pattern and comparing written instructions to the photos, and can only conclude that several important instructions have been left out? How many blocks should each fat quarter contribute to and should block A fabrics be used for second block B or should they stay only with A? That’s all the questions I’ve figured out so far, but I haven’t started cutting yet. Thanks for your attention. PS: I am a fairly experienced quilter.
