low volume quilt top finished!

Here it is! My low volume quilt top. I really enjoyed making this one. Simple 3.5" squares. I liked picking through my stash and adding loads of different prints. I still need to quilt it, I am thinking just straight lines, about 1/2" apart? What do you think?


The beginning. Just loads of squares. I bought several new prints as well. 

Then I pieced several strips together, I worked those strips together in the end. I didn't do this the most efficient way. Oh well!


But I had fun making it!









Here you have it! I hope you like it as much as I do!

I do love it!! So cute and it's one you could snuggle under for hours checking out all of the adorable prints :) Straight line quilting would look fab.

So fresh and pretty in a low-key way! Just love it, and I think straight line quilting will be just the right modern, subtle touch to make it irresistable!

That is so pretty and simple just perfect! I love the low volume quilts.

Yes, simple straight line quilting would be perfect. I never heard the term low volume quilt. I assume it means the prints are not as dense on the background, or very bold. This quilt looks very snuggly and comforting.

LOVE this! I have 3 tub full of white with print fabrics. I think I need to start some strip piecing and make a patchwork for myself.

This is adorable. What do you plan to do with it when it's done?

It's lovely- sometimes simplicity is best. I think your quilting plan is just right.

I just finished a nine patch and I straight stitched it both sides of all seams. It takes a little bit time but you do not have to mark it. And it is more forgiving thant stitching in the ditch. You just align your needle the distance you want the line apart and that's it. I did mine without moving my needle, so it was 1/8" apart.

Love the quilt. I think straight line or cross hatching would be spot on for the quilting. Anything else would detract from the fabrics xxx

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh I love this! I would have to do some kind of swirly or feather quilting on it! BEAUTIFUL!

Maryse said...

Very pretty and so peaceful!:))

Jennie said...

This is just too cute. Now I want one. Time to start collecting prints . . .

Nikki said...

I want one too. Cheery quilts don't always have to have bright colors. Thanks for the lesson!

I am very inspired by your version of the low volume squares. I think your quilting plan is good too, and am looking forward to seeing it all finished.

Michele said...

Oh it is so, so pretty and calming. Nicely done.

This is stunning! I have loved seeing your progress on IG. How would it have been more efficient to piece? In blocks? I love the idea of straight lines for this beauty. I can't wait to see it finished!

I love it! Perfectly light and airy for summer -- but I can imagine it looking lovely with cool winter light too.
