Low Volume Yellow Brick Road

This Yellow Brick Road quilt is Gail's.  Gail normally quilts her own quilts, and does a very lovely job of them too, but this quilt was a little larger than she likes to tackle.  This might also have been right about when her machine decided it needed a few months vacation at the spa (aka repair shop) too.  I was pleased to quilt it for her.

 Cheryl Arkison is a quilter, designer and writer in Calgary.  I first learned  about low volume quilts from her, which, as I understand it, means that the fabrics all 'speak softly'.  Love the concept, and I love how Gail's quilt turned out.

Gail's daughter picked the fabrics, and she did a wonderful job.

I love the texture on this quilt.   Hobbs 80/20 batting.  Pearl Glide thread.  If I recall correctly, the quilt was 63x72, and so would have used 18 FQ of fabric.
