The Low Volume Block - NYC Metro Mod Quilt Guild Block Lotto

For so long I've been wanting to make a quilt using just cream and white fabrics so when I got the instructions for the November Lotto Blocks for the NYC Metro Mod Quilt Guild I knew exactly what sort of block I was going to make.

The instructions are a 12.5" unfinished block; any block design; low volume fabrics.

Time to trial my idea and see just how a block for a whole white and cream quilt could look.

I've allowed myself to use tone on tones,

and varied textures, especially for the solids, adding visual and tactile interest.

I've used 9 fabrics and cut 9 blocks - (6) 5" x 4.5" and (3) 4" x 3.5" and I've joined them together using row by row and nested seams method from my Easy Scrappy Nine Patches tute.

Yep, it's confirmed, I do want to make a whole quilt just like this.

As always you can check out all the blocks that our Bee make for the November Block Lotto on my Quilty - NYC Metro Mod Guild Challenge Blocks Pinterest Board- I'll add more pins as each person in the Bee posts photos of their finished blocks and you can see my NYC Mod Quilt Guild post here too.
