Low Volume Moroccan Lullaby - HQM Quilt 14

 It is Week 14 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and can you believe I am posting on a Monday!!!   I know, right, but it is going to be a busy week with lots of fun shares, so I had to get this in early :)   And early was the only option, as we have some fun BBQ and Family and Games planned for this evening ;)  So let's get to it.   Here is my Low Volume Moroccan Lullaby!!! 

So these were actually Bee Blocks that my Bee Mates made for me clear back in 2018.  After making up my original Moroccan Lullaby pattern, I started to wonder what it would be like in a low volume version.   Kind of funny that it was actually the beginnings of my Moroccan Lullaby 2 pattern ;)    So I grabbed all of my Corey Yoder Low Volumes from 3 different lines and sent the fabrics out.    And I have to say, when I sewed the blocks together, I really worried that I might have gone a little "too scrappy and bright" in my low Volume Crosshatching backgrounds ;)  

Ya know, we all have that moment when we just want to go back and change a fabric choice, right!!   And so the quilt top sat, and sat.   Until today!!! Because finishing it up is better then having a quilt top just sit in a pile.   And you know the funny thing, Now that it is all quilted, I like it all the more ;)  Sure, it is still a little busy than my "usual" style, but I just love how the quilting made those rainbows in the corners just pop.   It really let the secondary design shine.  

I quilted it with an all over loose feather design.  The main reason I choose this, is because it is not super dense.   And you might have also found this, but when putting quilt blocks together that have been made from lots of different people, they aren't always the same size.   So there was a bit of  "easing in" in the quilting and something really loose works best for that ;) 

And now, I just can't help but smile at this Low Volume Moroccan Lullaby.   I have set it aside because I have a sweet Senior friend of my daughters that this quilt will just fit perfectly.  She is all rainbows and sunshine and it will be an perfect Graduation gift for her to take to college.   So fun!!!! 

And that is Quilt #14 - Low Volume Moroccan Lullaby ;)  14 Down and only 12 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)  I'm on the downward slope!!!!  

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day and for my quilting friends in the USA, I hope you have a very Happy 4th of July!!

Pin It!


  1. Yay - that must feel so good! Beautiful quilt - such an intricate design!

  2. It's beautiful and I'm sure your daughter's friend will be delighted! I absolutely love that loose feather quilting!! I'm fairly new to your blog AND to free-motion you have more info on how to do the feathers? I like that they seem to have no spine. And do you mark a meander first?

    1. Hi Robin, I love doing the loose feather quilting, it really is easier than it looks.
      I first learned it from Rebecca Silbagh and shared her little "tutorial" for it on this post

    2. THANKS!! Wow, that's perfect and exactly the look I'd been wanting, but it never clicked how to do it until I saw her video on the magna doodle! Thanks so much, Melissa!

  3. This is truly gorgeous. I'm drawn to the subtle colors and low lights.

  4. This is a really beautiful quilt, Melissa. Now I want to make one.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
