Low Volume Plus Quilt

Last weekend, I worked a bit more with the low volume plus swap blocks… I can’t wait to get this one done and hung in the living room! I usually work with fabrics on the cool side, so I deliberately requested swap blocks that were outside my comfort zone – I love the summery reds, oranges, and yellows that I received!

I quilted all the blocks, decided on a layout, and sewed all the rows together. Next, I need to press open all the seams and attach the rows together. Then I’ll be ready to attach the backing and binding.

Mostly, though, I worked on the Riley Blake Fabric Challenge… nothing like a deadline to inspire some sewing! I actually finished the challenge, so I’ll share that tomorrow. Here’s a sneak peek until then!
