I just saw something fun a few days ago. It was a drop-everything-I- gotta-try-this moment. (Well anyway, it was new to me). Have you ever heard of Low Volume quilts?
The idea is to use fabrics that are neutral, with minimal color, white backgrounds etc. Like this....
Pam was helping me, (she is so fun. I always try to go in when she is working) and said that quilters usually don't have a lot of these types of fabrics in their stash. I certainly didn't.
Sew Peachey (send her some new blogger love). She also has a link to a Low Volume QAL on flickr where you can see more of these types of quilts.
