November: Low Volume MADE Fabric

Member Victoria Findlay Wolfe's new quilt book, 15 Minutes Play is coming out in November! 
As a warm-up exercise, let's make some fabric with scraps like the block above. Starting with a bit of red, randomly add low volume (light colored) fabrics any which way you please. Then, trim to a 6 inch square. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, see the photos below. Have fun! 

La la, just playing. Add some here, add some there. Press as you go.

Your block might have fewer pieces in it. This is improvisational, and I got a little carried away.

Use your ruler to make sure your block is big enough. Then trim.

I rebelled at the last minute, adding the pretty sprinkles in the upper right corner. I may decide to replace it with a "lower volume" print before the November meeting. Maybe not. Haha. 

Betcha can't make just one! 

Be sure to visit Victoria's website for wonderful inspiration.
