What I am working on.. a low volume quilt

Well having come home from Rarotonga I felt the need to get behind the sewing machine. The only thing was my concentration was not too good.
So I pulled out some of my scraps that I had cut about 6 months ago. I had tried to tidy up my fabric haul so I went through my scraps and cut 6.5 inch strips or 4.5inch squares. It dealt with the scraps really well. At the time I was channeling low volume quilting.

So this is my attempt at a very simple low volume quilt. All the strips are sewn and now just need a few hours to get it all together (without the help of Morris!!!).

  2. Looking forward to seeing the finished result!

  3. Well snap!! .. I am also doing a bit of a low volume thing too, but with small pops of colour!! I just love Raro, been over there 5 times now, so relaxing & so just like some parts of NZ use to be!! Linda

  4. Anything with strips and low volume sounds great to me. I am geographically challenged though and had to check where Raratonga is -I now know it's in the Cook Islands. Thanks for that!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.
