Awhile back I had purchased two jelly rolls of Ivory Basics fabrics. These are all low volume fabrics. I still have one of the jelly rolls intact, but I had cut one of the rolls into 2.5″ squares and I have basted nearly all of those squares at this point.

As a starting point for designing a low volume quilt, I decided that I wanted to create flowers using one print for the outside petals and a solid fabric for the center of each flower. I chose Kona Snow for my solid color.

Here we see the Kona Snow center along with the darkest print in the Ivory Basics collection. This will be the greatest level of contrast in the finished project. But at this point I am merely making flowers.

While shopping for the Kona Snow I came across a Kona Fat Quarter bundle of twelve fabrics that I simply could not pass by. It is called “Not That White”, and it has twelve different whites in the bundle.  I liked it so much, and I could see so much potential in it, that I actually ordered two of the bundles.

I’ve got plans for one of these bundles, but that is going to be another post.
