Featured Fabrics
Stephanie used fabrics from the Meadowlark collection by Melanie Testa for Windham Fabrics to make this quilt.

In creating the bird fabric in Melanie Testa’s Meadowlark, she sought to raise awareness for Audobon’s list of 20 Common Birds in Decline. The Eastern Meadowlark is 6th on this list, its numbers having declined by 73% since 1973; the designer's original name for this quilt was Lark Star.
