Can you imagine a meadow with hearty, deeply colorful blooms like the red and pink sunset colors across the sky? This is what I thought of while I visited my mother last summer and we walked through the gardens. The coneflowers were in full bloom in the warm summer sun with their plump centers drawing in the bees and butterflies.
I love the proportions of coneflowers and those big full cones, full of nectar, and colorful petals that hang down with a lovely curve in warm red, fuscia and rich sunset shades. The flowers seem as if they are always looking up to the sky in anticipation of the happy sun or as a welcome for the bumblebees.
The beautiful shape of the coneflower inspired this collection and I couldn’t resist adding in those bumblebees- so plump and fuzzy, just like the flower centers! The fabric group also includes little drawings that show the coneflowers and bees in sweet illustrations or dancing within paisley shapes. Watercolor textures, sprigs of plants and sketchy oval dots compliment the lively group.
Painted Meadow has 4 colorways of cream, pinks, green and teal. It is available in precuts of Layer Cakes, Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls, Fat Quarter Bundles and Mini Charms. It was shown at the Kansas City, MO Quilt Market 2019 with Moda Fabrics and will be shipping to quilt shops in October, 2019.
Enjoy the sunset colors of Painted Meadow with coneflowers and the buzzing of plump bees as you feel the warm summer sun…

The focus fabric is gorgeous and the other fabrics work so beautifully with it! Can't wait to get my hands on this!
I am becoming addicted to your fabrics. Each collection you design is more beautiful than the last, but I have to confess that Painted Meadow takes my breath away each time I see it. I just purchased a layer cake along with your Fence pattern. I can't wait to make a cheerful quilt that will add a burst of Springtime to my home throughout the Winter months. Those sweet bumblebees are irrestible. You are such a talented artist. Some day I hope to see your stunning designs on other home goods like china, calanders, note cards. etc., but for now your fabric has increased my passion for quilting.

As I am measuring my new kitchen curtains, cone flowers, my granddaughter is sitting next to me wearing her pillowcase dress made from Dandi Annie. I just so love your fabrics and my curtains will add a much needed bright spot in our long white winters in South Dakota. I should also say that her birthday crown in made from your peony line from 3 years ago as she just turned 4. Thank you for your artistic beauty!

I just started making quilts again after several years of not doing so. I just came across this fabric and it is gorgeous. I’m so very disappointed that I can’t find fat quarter bundles or layer cakes anywhere. What a beautiful line.

Do you have anymore painted meadow foreclosed creme? I am short by a hard on my project by Margaret Leuwen.

Hi Robin. I told my daughter to pick out a quilt design and I will make her a quilt she loves. She picked your beanstalk quilt and it seems your painted meadows fat quarter bundle is out of stock everywhere. Will moda be making more or am I out of luck?

Hello! I absolutely love your Painted Meadow fabric and have just purchased a layer cake... can’t wait to get started but I need a cream/white fabric for the pattern I have chosen.... would you be able to recommend which Moda would be best with my layer cake please? Many thanks!

Your fabrics are amazing with their incredibly intense vibrant colors. Also using nature as your inspiration is such a good choice in our materialistic world; I would love to learn to create fabrics also. Do your have to be a painter first?

I LOVE your coneflower with bumbles! I’ve used it to make beeswax food wraps and it’s a favorite. I can’t find it anywhere anymore and I’m bummed. Where might I get more? Any and all the colors would be great! Thanks
