Low volume quilt

Hi everybody – I wandered into some blogs about a quiltalong for low volume quilts (see links below).  I’ll bring my creation tomorrow to show you in person!Image

Five cuts minimum

Nancy’s direction for her block was “Five cuts minimum”. That’s it. Nothing else. Oh, she did have an inspirational photo, which inspired me, but everyone else took off on their own tangent. Five different strips and one large rectangle of a beautiful floral – five cuts at least – go to town. Oh, and we could add fabric if so moved.

The return: everything from traditional pieced to wonky, from sashiko to raw edge appliqué. And this is what she’s done so far:

She basted and started free motion quilting in the upper left corner. Go Nancy! I’m looking forward to seeing it finished.
