Oh Scrap! : More Low Volume Blocks

 This week just really flew by!  

Most of the things I worked on, you will have to wait a few days to see. 

You might remember I have been working on finishing up the 9-patches for my white based low volume heart quilt.  The quilt is now finished and I just need to sew the binding on it.

I really like how it turned out, so this week I cut and sewed 40 more blocks with cream based low volume prints.  My plan is to put a pink heart on this second quilt.

I didn't sew all the blocks myself; I had the help of a couple friends who came over to my house for a gab session - yes, even some sewing occurred!  But I did have all the squares cut before they arrived!

Now I just need to cut and sew the pieces for the big 18" heart.  Hopefully I can get that completed this week.  I am hoping on Friday to share the red heart quilt.  

I am just happy my low volume bin is no longer overflowing!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

You've got some great low volume prints there! Fun to look at them up close. I always wanted to make a completely low volume quilt, but never have - this one's going to be beautiful! Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Nice to see the heart quilt again- great progress

That's a happy problem to have, Cynthia. I wish my low volume would be overflowing. I found myself searching for low volume fabric most of the time.
You have some lovely prints in there. Enjoy! ;^)

Such a cheerful quilt! I can see why you’re making a second one!

Great low volume prints on your blocks Cynthia. Looking for next Friday for seeing the Heart Quilt, I am sure it is awesome. Have fun with your pink squares. said...

I love the way the heart quilts are coming along.

Love the low volume fabrics that have sparks of colors. It becomes a cozy vibe with zip.

Bonnie said...

There's nothing like taming a scrap bin! Your heart quilt looks fabulous.

Astrid said...

Love your low volume prints. Adding the big red heart makes a unique quilt.

It seems surprising to me that you would have such a plethora of light prints. That is something that I have to go buy often since that was not something that I had collected as much of. Good job!
