Talk of the Town - Low Volume Quilts


Pale and Interesting, a pillow - by Rachel of Wooden Spoon
Low Volume fabrics are pale fabrics, mostly white and cream in background  often with accents of brighter or darker colors thrown in for interest. I love Rachel's work with low volume fabrics because she just seems to choose the right brighter prints. Sure, it's a white pillow, and it's unified by underlying color, but there's still so much to look at! That splash of red and orange! It's a puzzle! It's a riddle! (And did you notice that clever bit of Painter's Palette in the left bottom corner! I could seriously contemplate this pillow all day...)

Here is another clever project from Rachel, a doll quilt top:

The pattern is Night Garden, by Sarah Fielke. Here, Rachel is using a lot of text prints alongside other low volume fabrics.

Lori of Lori H. Designs made this king sized quilt for her bedroom, where it must just look fantastic!

I love the sparks and hints of green and red and orange... And look at that quilting!

Jen made this fabulous couch runner with three low volume bundles from Pink Castle Fabrics:

 The pattern she used is Summer by Thimble Blossoms. And the quilting! Jen free motion quilted it herself, and it looks awesome, Jen! She used Faux Bois stripe in white for binding, and I sure love a funky stripe binding!

If you are inspired to start your own low volume project by these fantastic quilts and pillows, we have two bundles to chose from, a fat quarter bundle of twelve fabrics:

The Super Awesome Low Volume Bundle!
And a fat sixteenth bundle (roughly 9" x 11") of 32 prints:

The Low Volume Scrappy 16th Pack!
Or you can build your own half yard bundle by browsing our Low Volume yardage.

I know I'm working on something a little low volume myself. Or maybe it's three different things. Whatever! When you finish your next low volume project, or any project, we'd love to see it at the Made From Pink Castle Fabrics Flickr Group!
