The Low Volume Plus Quilt I submitted for the Scrap Quilt Challenge is my first attempt to cross the bridge from Traditional to more Contemporary quilt making. I am not yet ready to venture into Modern quilts with a lot of negative space and graphic designs in them, although they are very striking.
So I began surfing blogs and was loving the low volume backgrounds that I saw in some quilts. I started collecting photos of my favorites and began searching for low volume fabrics on Etsy. First time I saw a Plus quilt I just knew I had to make one. I am not one for using bright colors in my quilts very often, but after making baby and toddler quilts for grandchildren I decided to search through my stash. I surprised myself to find enough bright scraps to make the Low Volume Plus Quilt and a scrappy binding for the quilt I like to name Color Me Happy.
