Low volume high volume quilt

I stole this block idea from Lynne who thinks it might be a depression block but she couldn't find it on the web.  I'm going to call it low/high volume.
Here's a link if you want to check out her beautiful finished quilt:

And the above pic is an example of a lesson NOT learned.  A couple of posts ago I showed a table runner that I made and some of the fabric melted under the iron.  Well, I did it again.  I knew this bottom right fabric was not 100% cotton and used it anyway.  And, of course, it melted.  So I removed three blocks and replaced the fabric with something else.  BUT I noticed after posting the photo of the two blocks that I missed one.  You probably can't make it out, and I don't know how to use those fancy arrows that some people use to pinpoint something.  Anyway, I'll be getting Jack out again.  All in all, these are fun blocks to make and I hope to have an entire quilt soon.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!  May you bless and be blessed!

  1. I am so looking toward to getting my low volume squares in the mail! So many things to make. Your blocks are fabulous.

  2. Those are going to make a terrific quilt.

  3. I hate the loss of squares due to fabric content, so sad to find out after the fact. I saw where one quilter had chosen a black solid because of the way the color hadn't faded after washing, only to have it shred in the finished quilt. That in itself is a reason to consider fabric content!!

    I thought the block was a split nine patch, but I didn't research it. I love the deep contrasts, you have "flung a cravin" on me to consider that pattern again (no, it doesn't take much to want to do a neat pattern, lo1)


  4. Your blocks are great!!! Isn't it fun when you put it all together? Scrap quilts are the best!

  5. I like this block too, a great one to use scraps up. I have have fabric that shrunk when I ironed my pieced block, lucky I had only made one block so it wasn't too much of a mission to unpick. I threw the rest of that fabric away.
    But I'm usually not that organised!


I love to hear from you!
