Low Volume Quilt

I was inspired by this gorgeous low volume quilt on Crazy Mom Quilts blog to make one for myself. I love the light, cool, summer-like feel of it. I went through my scraps and began to separate out fabric that I thought might work. I didn't have nearly enough, so I went shopping! That was the fun part.

I have been cutting and cutting and cutting for the last few days. Yesterday I put my strips up on the design wall. Then I moved them around. And around. And around. I thought I had them all where I wanted them. But last night I changed my mind again and added some new fabrics and took out others. 

Finally, at 2:00am, I decided that this was my "final" design. I'm sure I will tweak it some as I begin to sew. I'm not so sure about this quilt at all. I'm used to scrappy, but this one seems to go beyond scrappy to "too busy!"  Time will tell. I'm going to start sewing on it today. 

Happy stitching.
