Lucille Bag and Hello Gorgeous

We got some new patterns while at Quilt Market this past Spring and I have put one of them to use. I made The Lucille Bag by Abbey Lane.

The side ties are a cute touch, adds a bit of pop. I hung it up next to the Hello Gorgeous fabric and it looked a little flat so I stuffed it a wee bit with batting scraps. Much better. 

I put a vote up on our Facebook page (The Quilt Barn, the one in Idaho) for either Hello Gorgeous or PB&J.  Thanks for voting everyone!! That was fun.

And last week Heather asked Jenele to cut low volume fat quarter bundles. We are mad for texty and low volume fabrics!

Jenele has a great eye and I love her bundles!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July/Thursday and have a great weekend.

  1. Love the low volume. Is there a rule of thumb when choosing low volume fabrics?

    1. Thanks Vicki.
      I don't think there is a rule. When Jenele and I were pulling bolts to create the bundles we just piled the bolts (you can use fat quarters, stash, etc) and see what worked. Not all bolts we pulled made the cut. I like to stand back and squint and my pile and see if anything is to glaring.
