Meeting Recap

Kayla led a great discussion about low volume fabrics and quilts. Check your email for her handout she made, and enjoy these links.

Marilyn shared this quilt, and pattern with us a couple years back. Notice her use of low volume fabric in the background. 

Remember, our challenge this year will focus on the use of expansive negative space and the use of low-volume fabrics. The discussion next month will focus on negative space.

Rossie's discussion on this quilt goes right along with her information in the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club March lesson, and her post from a number of years ago:
