Today’s post is part of a series on this blog every Monday.
I don’t know about you, but fabric is EVERYTHING! I love buying it, petting it and then gushing with you about it. I’ll show you my latest fabric purchases and where you can buy it too.

Not sure if you noticed this series was on hiatus over the holidays, but now we are back to our regularly scheduled posts. It didn’t matter that I didn’t post any of my bundles, because in all honesty I’ve gotten no new fabrics since the last post.
This bundle of low volume fabrics was much needed as is just more fabrics in general. I must be not re-supplying quick enough because I’m at an all time low. I was pulling fabrics for my Bad Girl quilt and just couldn’t find anything I liked or at least enough of something I liked. This might be a laughable statement for someone who was a layman, but if you are a quilter, I’m sure you know just what I mean. I seem to have a lot of fabrics that I’ve been picking over for years and all that’s left is those fabrics. Is there such a thing as a fabric stash remodel? If there is, then please point me in that direction.
Onto low volumes….
Today’s fabric picks
- Nebulae in cream
- Harmony Fence in light
- Twinkling Tune in light
- Glitter Litter in glow fish
- Daisy Dance in gray
- Constellations in white

- Rosemilk in sorbet
- Scallop Dot in whisper

I love adding just a smidgen of black to my low volumes used in my quilts! Also, these particular set of low volume fabrics is what I’d call the non-busy ones. If you are having trouble creating your low volume scrappy look limit how many busy prints you would add to the mix. Keeping it non-busy makes for a more clean look.

On Wednesday I’m showing off my latest rescue quilt and talking about my goals for the year, and this Friday I have a quilt reveal for a recent Little Miss quilt I finished up with purples and lavenders.
Hugs until then, sweet friends!

I love these posts, even if they are trouble for my credit card!! I just added a good 3/4 of this list to my Etsy cart. Oh the trouble- but my stash needs it 😉 Totally justifiable!
Haha! My apologies!!
I enjoy each and every one of your posts. Thanks for all you do to brighten my day, educate me, and to help motivate me! In today’s post you had a lovely shot of low volumes sitting on the prettiest crochet- would you mind sharing the pattern name of that crochet?
I absolutely would, Robin, but I actually found that piece at my grandmas house after she passed. It was tucked away and she had never shown it to me, so I really don’t know anything about it. If you would like better pictures of it, I’d be happy to email you a few. Let me know. Thanks for your sweet comments! ?

Oh, how funny- I just said that yesterday on IG! Its like i am psychic!! Supersoft Liberty Badgirl quilt? I am so SUPER excited to read your ‘Scraps’ series! I am starting to build up a good amount and now I can know how to wrangle them! Yay!? Hey, i wanted to tell you i had a lightbulb moment yesterday when sewing my NY Beauty blocks for “I Am Enough’ – THAT is why that one very vintage quilt you were working on had bits of newspaper in it, a while back? From paperpiecing?!! Duh, I couldnt figure that one out, when u wrote about it, I thought maybe they were using it like extra batting or something, hahahaha!!! I am a dork ?
Haha! You mean that string quilt! Yes. They used to cut the newspaper to the correct size and sew the block to it. Then trim the block by using the newspaper. Very similar to paper piecing, but also cAlled foundation piecing.
