Another low volume finish…

In my work room I have a box that I throw all my low volume scraps into as I am working.  This box fills up pretty quickly, not surprisingly with all the quilts I have my hands in/on and every time it gets to the point where it is over flowing I make a Scrap Vortex quilt…

This is my second one of these quilts I have made and I really do love how they turn out…. you can see my first version here… and with both these quilts I have struggled to get good photos.

they really are just an excuse for me to throw in as much fussy cutting goodness as I can… which makes for the best game of I spy…

  1. Glad to see you on a “finish it” roll, Cath! Great little quilt, too. I’m inspired to dig through my scraps and emulate you. Cheers!

  2. Hi! As katechiconi said, I can only dream to have one enough low volume scraps to make a whole quilt. This is so so beautiful! You have there lots of special scraps and I can learn from your quilt what kind of fabrics I could add to low volumes. Happily I just made mini with low volumes and today I shall continue it with some applique. Have a lovely weekend! x Teje

  3. BEAUTIFUL! What are your plans for this? Would be wonderful as donation to foster kids… the girls would just love it!

  4. Very very nice I think this is my newest bestest want to make quilt.
    I found you on a blogroll of No Hats in the House. Following you on Feedly now.

  5. I love this. I have yet to make a scrappy quilt. I like having order. I am nervous that I won’t have enough of one fabric or too much of another. I am soon just going to have to bit the bullet and dig in!

  6. I absolutely love this! I agree, it looks like an old quilt, and although I have enough low volume (or ANY volume!) I can’t seem to make the first step.
