Low Volume Prints

Modern Patchwork Magazine has a great article written by Cheryl Arkison about Low Volume fabrics in their Winter 2014  issue.

They define them as fabrics with a white/light base. Or the reverse with the color in the background with a predominantly white design. Basically they are a white-on -white or beige- on- beige fabric without a graphic nature to the pattern. They can be of any scale  and may be  a floral, novelty or stripe.

I have found myself admiring several quilts in books, magazines and on pinterest that are refereed to as low volume. I bet you have too.

Patt checked in a new fabric today that I thought could be classified as low volume.
We have it  4 colors.

and a pale gray. 

I will be trying to collect as many fabrics as I can find with writing on them for my stash. 
Give them a look and maybe start your own collection. 

Thanks for stopping by. Janeese

  1. Love the newsprint fabrics. Rita from Red Pepper Quilts makes beautiful scrappy quilts using lots of low volume fabrics.
