    My Low Volume Quilt

    I decided I would try something new, for me, at least. It's a Low Volume Quilt with over 150 Modern Fabrics. They are 3" squares, cut with my GO machine. It was fun to make.

    What do you think? It was inspired by L&R Designs Quilting Blog. I just love her choice in fabrics. Thanks for looking!

    What does "low volume" mean? Is it not as thick?

    You know how people refer to bright, bold colors as "loud". I think "low volume" just means the opposite. The quilt has very soft, muted colors

    that looks like an old Mennonite quilt I have at home, except that it was pieced with all scrappy 9-patches but no nine-patch pattern and the squares are more like 11/2"-2" and of course it is all 30's type fabrics.

    Cheery!

    You did a great job - absolutely love your fabric placement.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    It means more muted colors. It is someone's new way of saying it.

    Anyway...the quilt is beautiful--very relaxing to have around.

    Low Volume as in intensity. The colors have less intensity, thus causing a more muted effect.

    They seem to have in common soft colors on a light background. But they can just be softer colors, causing a lesser intensity effect.

    Not a kit - I shopped and shopped, mostly online. However, I was able to pull a few from my stash.

    Modern fabrics are a new(er) trend, I think. Fun!
