Low volume charm swap


The gorgeous and talented Rebecca@MakingRebeccaLynne has just announced that she'll be running an international low volume swap which will be starting on Monday 27th August.  For details please click on the button below


and if you're interested please leave a comment on her announcement post - find it here.


If you're thinking 'what on earth is low volume?' then fear not for Rebecca has pulled together some fine examples on her announcement post and I've borrowed a few photos from a couple of bloggy friends (I asked first!)


These are bright blocks surrounded by a low volume background

P.S.  Yes, I know I said that my next post would have a giveaway in it...turns out I lied *wink*

Edited to add: for some reason some of the photos aren't always showing and I've tried to fix it but have run out of patience...please just click on the link and it'll take you to Flickr!!  I'll come back and try again after a cup of tea!  Fixed...just don't ask me how 'cos I don't know!

  1. Oh wow seeing Fi's blocks and recognising some fabric I realised these were the one's she's made for me!!!! How lucky am I? And Archie is seriously cute low volume. (Just in case he thought I was fickle and not showing him enough love)

  9. Hmmmmmm that looks like one bored doggy. I imagine the low volume is because Helen isnt whispering "Bickies" or "walkies"

  19. Hi there, I've just discovered your blog and am already head-over-heels for Archie..what a handsome lad he is! I look forward to following his adventures in quilting (and yours too!)
    My Ben & Jerry (both girls, despite their names..they don't seem to mind!)have their own quilt too and would love Archie to hop over and say hello sometime too. Happy weekend!
