Low Volume Log Cabin Quilt

 As I have viewed quilt shows and
followed trends in the industry
I've noticed that Low Volume quilts have increased
quite a bit in popularity.
Sometimes it's nice just to
let the eye rest.
 From Prescott Loves Quilting Show
I thought
Jane's Quilt
by Iris Lacey
Quilted by Anne Spiotta
was a nice representation of a Low Volume Quilt.
 White and Off White cotton Sateen
Foundation Pieced uneven Log Cabin
 Can you see the Log Cabin block?
Notice how the taupe colored side is cut with small strips
and the white uses larger strips?
This gives a nice effect when 4 blocks are
placed together. 
The soft contrast makes me want to pull out my
neutral fabrics and play.
I've always wanted to make a Log Cabin quilt.
This one calls to me.
And it even has stars in the sashings :)

Wow. Look how tiny. The neutral color is so relaxing to look at. :o) Like sand on a beach.
