|Low Volume Fabrics|
Last year I was in a Low Volume Swap that was fabulous, so much so I am in it again this year. I will end up with 36 (10") squares of fabric similar to these above. A low volume fabric usually has a lot of white, cream or gray with a print that still makes it read as a white. Definitely a more contemporary feel.
I used them in this quilt that I made last fall. I think it adds a lot to the quilt, especially if you like scrappy.
A few months ago I was in a Skinny Pincushion swap that was a lot of fun. It took no time to make and I think everyone who signed up, sent one out.
Remember this drawstring bag I made a few weeks ago? You can find the pattern here at Quarter Inch Mark. Chase is having a Quilt Along that I have joined, I have never done one before so this will be new to me, but I am looking forward to it.
These blocks I made last Friday are the beginning of the QAL. If you want to know more you can check it out here. I think it might be fun for my first go at it.
Have you ever participated in any of these? How did it go?
