Yowser! It hurts my eyes, just to look at all that colour!! Not really, It's kind of fantabulous, but definitely doesn't have that soft vintage vibe I was aiming for...
But I was shocked when I went to my stash and discovered that I actually have very little genuine low volume. I have lots of prints on white, mostly black or bright colour, but they were not going to work on this. I needed super low volume. White on white type low volume. This is genuinely a surprise because I am a HUGE fan of Vow Volume (so much so I just signed up for the third round of the Low Volume Swap). But a layer cake will not solve my Penny Patch crisis. So I shopped.
Come on, you knew it was coming!!
I grabbed a bunch of grey and brown and white and cream on white.
I also got some blue on white and cream. And a tiny piece of orange on white. I don't know how much of these I'll use, but I'm glad I grabbed them. They all have a nice softness to them, which for me is definitley the appeal of low volume. Hopefully they will add that softness to the colour that I'm aiming for.
So time for more cutting and piecing and hopefully I can have this sewn together in the next... I want to say week, but I work 5 days a week, and then I have plans next weekend, and I'm working on my Harry Potter quilt, and I have to actually spend time with my husband at some point... so it might be three or four weeks before I get a chance to get to it...
And this is why it's hard to show you guys projects properly!! Anyone feel like paying me to stay home and sew??? Not to give you the makes, of course, I want these for myself, just pay me to potter around my house :-) No takers?? What a surprise! Lol.
So I'll be back with this as soon as I make some kind of progress! :-)
P.S. Can you see I got the fancy thingamajig for the camera!! So ecited to have real photos again. I'm like a kid in a candy store looking at my photo cards :-D E xx
