Red, Black, and Low Volume!!!!

So if you have been around here for a bit, you know I tend to make a few Red, Black, and White quilts each year ;)  I make them for my Alma Mater, SUU, and they are raffled, or auctioned off to raise money for scholarships.   Well, its time to start another SUU quilt, but this time, instead of plain white, I am using Low Volume prints, and I am so excited!!!!  I really am on a bit of a Low Volume kick at the moment and I am just loving it :)  Plus, it really is using up some serious scraps and that is just double bonus!!!

I spent the other day doing some serious chain stitching!!!   I just love this classic color combination, seriously so glad that my Alma Mater has such awesome colors :)   I was blown away to find that I had enough red/white and black or grey/white low volume prints in my scraps/stash for all the backgrounds.  I really think it is just going to be so fun fun when it all comes together :)

And because this quilt is being made using one of Fat Quarter Shop's soon to be released Shortcut Quilt patterns, you know it is coming together super fast!!!  This was the second day of chain stitching and pressing and all my blocks are now done and this is ready to be sewn into a quilt top!!!   So fun ;) 

And I best be off now.  School ended yesterday and the kids are all up and ready for their summer to start!!  

Happy Quilting!!!
