My low volume bundle

Low volume fabrics, low volume quilts, low volume bundles and low volume blocks.  The new craze sweeping the modern quilters.  And now I have put together a low volume FQ bundle in collaboration with Brenda from Pink Castle Fabrics.  And for this weekend only, my bundle and all the bundles over at Pink Castle have 20% off using code BUNDLE20.

These are stash essentials for the modern quilter.  Once white sashing was all the rage.  Then grey was the new white.  Then mixed neutrals were the new grey.  And now low volume fabrics are the neutral, the background, the sashing of choice.  I love them paired with Oakshotts as in this EPP quilt block I am working on for the FQ retreat.

I also love them paired with strong, vibrant prints as in the Windmills and Trees quilt I made over the summer.

  2. I do like this look, a lot, and just noticed this gorgeous quilt on Flickr---> http://www.flickr.com/photos/44430395@N06/8075797408/. Thanks for keeping me up to date on the new trends. Although I have been seeing quilts like this recently, it hadn't sunk into my brain yet that this was a NEW trend.

  3. I do try and keep up but white is the new grey is the new bundle has me lost again, adrift in the great wide sea of quilting that you navigate with such skill. I'd better get rowing.

  8. Low volumne by itself...not happening at my house, my taste is a way to loud. But low volume with a hit of noise or colour, now you're talking.

  10. Even though I've been quilting for a couple of years I still feel like a new quilter. I do not understand: "Low volume fabrics, low volume quilts, low volume bundles and low volume blocks." Can you explain this to me or give me a site where I can read about it?
    BTW, loved yesterday's post about Lemoyne Stars. That's a technique I want to try.

  12. It's a gorgeous bundle (how does Brenda do her amazing coupons??) and I like low volume aith bright colours as in your incredible windmills and trees - just beautiful. BTW, your amazing box of treasures arrived at my mum's - I have a feeling it may weigh less than 4.3KG when I get to see it at Christmas!
