Low Volume Quilt Finish












I actually only started this quilt the other day.  I had an overwhelming urge to cut up some fabrics to make a log cabin quilt.  I intended to make it blues on one side and low volume fabrics on the other.  I cut up all the low volume fabrics and then a few blues and decided I'd better make a test block first.  It just did not speak to me at all!  In the past I have loved the look of the log cabin block, but it just looked so old and flat to me that I chucked the log cabin idea.  So, with all the 1.5 inch strips I had already cut, this low volume quilt was born!

I actually really love this quilt!  I custom quilted this with an Anne Bright pattern that came out in August.  I love looking at this quilt as all the text fabrics pop out at you since you are not distracted with too much color going on...

Fabulous!!!! Woman you are making us others feel like slugs with how fast you pop out all the wonderful quilts you do! I know I always say I like this quilt, ya da ya da....but this is one of my favorites for sure. I have been eyeing low volume quilts lately and this one of my favorites!

I love this! Did you use Pez for the binding? What is the Ann Bright pattern called? I would love to get that one!!

Love this. I think it's the first low volume quilt I've seen that I can honestly say the about. Love that you have enough little pops of color in there to keep it interesting

A beautiful quilt, Jeannette! The "colorful" low volumne is awesome. And I too love the way the text strips pop out yet don't try to take control. It all blends quite well. Well done!

I've had this quilt in my head for days and nights--I love it so much! Finally, I went and got several text prints and some random low-volume fabrics and will soon start my own, but it will never compare to this beauty! Thank you for the inspiration. B

Can you tell me the size of the blocks you made for this quilt?
