Low Volume Primer

I have learned that when modern quilters say “low volume” they mean a very subtle white or cream print.

When I started making blocks for do good stitches, I thought low volume meant low contrast white, gray or cream in relation to the bolder fabrics.

After making a not-so-low-volume block, I was instructed that my low volume wasn’t low volume.

THIS IS NOT LOW VOLUME:

It was considered too dark and busy.

This month we are making cross blocks with “low volume” and black. I’ve figured it out.
