    Thanks for the picture - the color does punch up the quilt! Love the new modern quilts - so many opportunities for quilting!!!

    Technically, yes, it would be considered low value. I believe the younger, modern-er (yes I just made that word up) set of quilters has come up with the term "low volume" to describe these quilts, and it seems to have stuck. Low volume because they're on the quieter side, I suppose.

    Here's another one. I do like them quite a bit, they feel softer and more feminine to me. I just don't have enough of the right kinds of scraps to make one!

    Lovely idea. Those quilts are so restful. What a great way to use up stash.

    It makes the younger set feel like it is "their idea"--like it's something new. People often rename something old and remarket it as if it is a new design (think fashion).

    I agree that they should be called low value. definitely not my thing. I like lots of strong color.
