Copihue Quilt - The Low Volume One

The Copihue quilt pattern is now available in my shop.

After making the cover Copihue quilt, full of bright colors, I wanted to go in a little different direction for my second Copihue quilt. After playing around a lot with color palettes on Illustrator, I kept coming back around to the idea of making a low volume quilt.

Low Volume Fabrics

The truth is, I love the look of low volume quilts, but when doing fabric pulls I tend to gravitate towards bright, saturated colors. So before this, I had never done a low volume quilt. However, as I stared at this fabric pull, I wouldn't not do it.

All of the fabrics came from my stash. The flowers use a combination of whites, off-whites, and cream fabrics. For the background I used Confetti Cottons' Bleached Denim, and for the leaves I couldn't help myself and added a punch of color with a Confetti Cotton yellow named Daisy.

The Sewing Process

Confession - I loved the pull, I loved the individual pieces and units, but once I started putting this quilt together I doubted myself every stitch of the way. Would this look good? Would the whites, off whites, and cream maintain that contrast in the flowers design? Was the yellow too yellow?

I questioned everything.

And then, I put the quilt top together, and I fell in love. I turned into a heart-eyes emoji. It was better than I could ever hope for.

Quilt Finishes

After finishing the quilt top, it took me about 2.5 seconds to decide on the backing. I knew just the perfect fabric, so I hopped online and got a beautiful floral that has all the right colors to match the front.

Since I was running out of time for quilting, I quilted this myself on my Janome 9450 and used the wavy stitch preset on my machine. It adds the perfect amount of texture to this sweet quilt.

For the binding, I used some more Bleached Denim fabric to give the quilt a clean finish that kept all the attention on the quilt design.

This was quite possible one of the hardest quilts to photograph and I swear there not a single picture that does it justice, but I did my best haha.

Fran, this is a beautiful quilt and the finish is inspiring! It is so reassuring to hear that you get feelings of doubt sometimes about fabric choices, but it came together so well. Bravo! 👏
