Where to find Mary Lou Danielson online
Life can get hectic and there are times I have to step away from the sewing machine. And it's true, there is something so gratifying and therapeutic about immersing myself in cloth, thread, and the whirring of the machine. So here's to finding the time to step back into my therapist's office [a. Happy Sewing!!!! What have I been up to? And boy did I get a goody And my favorite part of this machine so far is that it cuts the thread! Then there were these scissors by Janome that really needed me too and the red leather case with the gold handle cinched the deal.
Yes I absolutely needed a new cutting mat because my other mat was cut throu So I got a 60x40 Alvin self-healing double-sided rotary cutting mat. For my birthday my children got me the Eleanor Burns stripology ruler. Okay so I really have been busy making other quilts; for instance The black and white queen-sized quilt is called the Tuxedo. The aqua, black, and white queen-sized quilt is called Folded Corners.

The gold, brown, and green king-sized batik quilt is called Rail Fence. The red, purple, aqua, black and white throw quilt is called Disappearing Nine Patch. Just finished this colorful vintage 's quilt pattern named Ruby's Treasure. It is a queen-sized Ruby McKim designed quilt and is available for purchase. Please message me for details and pricing. After two quilts designed with very subtle fabrics, I needed more color.
This low volume quilting tip is a combination of 9-patch and patch blocks. Wonky corners are added sporadically throughout the pre-assembled blocks. Then a few wonky stars are put in to showcase some very bold, bright pink batiks. Though a bit fussier to assemble, I am very pleased with the results.
Quilt number four is a low volume quilt with bright batik accents. This low volume quilting tip also focuses on these smaller squares that blend so well. Their size helps to create an all-over background without any single fabric dominating the design. Using a patch block, an assortment of 4 — 7 bright batik squares are added in random patterns.
While each block has multiple batik fabrics, they are grouped into color families. This way the blocks become very distinctive on their own and mix well when combined in a group. Bold contrasts are my favorite to quilt with. Given all the remaining bits of low volume fabric still in the pile, I really want to add a punch of bright, bold color. That means making up some 9-patch blocks with the low volume and adding some bright batik blocks sporadically throughout the quilt top to add lots of contrast.
My favorite go-to is batiks.
These sizes fit well with the 9-patch low volume blocks that will be made next. Plus, there is also some room for a bit more improv piecing. First, each improv batik block is randomly pieced from the center to build a square or rectangle. A bit like piecing a log cabin, narrow strips are added to the outer edges. Many of the narrow strips used in these blocks are pieced from smaller scraps. This way, many more fabrics can be included which adds some very interesting bursts of color. Also notice that not every strip is perfectly even.
There is a lot of improvisational piecing creating slight diagonal angles rather than a perfect square. Adding some colorful variations adds so much more interest to this type of pattern.

Decide if you want lots of color across your quilt top, or just a few sporadic squares. Make at least three times as many low volume 9-patch blocks as you have batik blocks. This will give the low volume background more area than the bright blocks. The batik blocks should be the highlight, so they stand out against the larger area of low volume and not take over the whole quilt top. Notice in the photo, I took it a step further.
