BLUEBERRY CRUMB CAKE {A LOW VOLUME QUILT}


OKAY,
so while the puppy was sleeping,
 I thought that it would be the perfect
time to bang out a blog post
about my
low volume quilt,



but then
I remembered that my 2 legged family
also needed 
to be fed.
I seriously considered forcing them to eat
leftovers again for the 3rd night in a row,
but I decided that pizza was the perfect solution.

No complaints in our house,
because pizza is like it's own food group!

Anyway, I got caught up in the sweet smell & carbohydrate nightmare
of the pizza
and I forgot about the blog post.



RECAP

2 Quilts done in 2 weeks.
You can read about the process HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.


I used various cream, beige, and white fat quarters from my stash (all Moda fabrics).
There are quite a few Fig Tree, 3 Sisters, & Bonnie & Camille prints
in the quilt.
I was glad to finally use them!

For the blue triangles, I used fabric from the Simplicity by Three Sisters for Moda fabrics
and Essential Dots fabric lines.

For the binding I used my forever favorite Simply Color by Vanessa of V and Co.


Finished Block Size 12"

Large Low Volume Quilt
84" X 84"
7 rows of 7 blocks

Smaller Low Volume Quilt
60" X 60"
5 rows of 5 blocks


Machine Quilted using Quilt-As-You-Go method.
More on this topic in a future post to come.

So when you are the mom of a new puppy
it is hard to find time/a way to take photos of your quilts.
I had to resort to begging
Hubby to be my quilt holder (not so easy anymore when you have a new puppy
nipping at your feet)!

So here are the best of the bunch.
The larger quilt is first:



Up next is the smaller quilt:


Since I wasn't pleased with these photos
(sorry Hubby not my idea of holding the quilt),
I decided to take my own photos while the
puppy was out for his walk:




Then the puppy came home and did this:

  7. I'm not usually a fan of low volume, but I really like this one. I think maybe it's those little blue triangles that really set it off. (Cute puppy!)
