The Meadowland quilt has taken the Internet by storm, with clean lines and classic quilt block components, it exemplifies the phrase, "all that’s old is new again.” Made of squares, strips and half-square triangles, the Meadowland block relies heavily on flying geese in its construction.  We will learn how to make four geese at a time using the no-waste method with in-depth discussion on how to work with directional prints and bulky seam allowances. You will leave class with the skills to make as many accurate Meadowland blocks as you need to make a gorgeous throw or bed quilt.  
 
Materials needed: This is a technique class, so this is what you will need to make one block.  If you are planning on making an entire quilt, please consult the Meadowland pattern for fabric requirements.
1) One copy of Then Came June's “Meadowland” pattern (available at Stitchology)
2) Three fat quarters in coordinating colors; one fat quarter in background fabric.  If you want to make a 48' x 64” throw, you will need 12 FQs or six 1/2 yard cuts in colors that you like plus 1 yd background fabric to complete the top.  The Meadowland pattern provides yardage requirements of a number of sizes so refer to it if you wish too make another size. 
3) One spool of all-purpose polyester threading a neutral color, optional. You may use cotton thread as well, but part of our class will involve pressing for less bulk, which benefits from using a stronger thread.
 
Tools required:
1) 45mm rotary cutter with new blade
2) One 24” long (approx.) acrylic rule for use with rotary cutter. This is the “standard” length of ruler that you most likely have already.
3) Seam ripper (just in case)
 
Optional tools: (These will be available to use in class, but if you have your own favorites, feel free to bring them.)
1) Pins
2) Cutting mat (Due to space concerns, please bring a smaller mat, such as a  12” x 18” or 18" x 24”.)
 
Sewing machines are available for students to use in class, but you may bring yours if your prefer. If you are bringing your own, please be sure to also bring:
1) The 1/4” foot you normally use
2) Extra needles for piecing (just in case)
3) Your preferred thread for piecing
4) Thread snips
