Mystery Block-of-the-Month by Linda J. Hahn in Low Volume

Did you see the AQS Mystery Quilt release today?  Each month for seven months a clue will be released.  Pattern design is by Linda J. Hahn.   The first clue involves just the fabric requirements.  Looks like it might involve strip piecing (I'm totally in to that!), connector squares, and HSTs. 

Linda is using beautiful batiks.  I had a lightbulb moment and decided that THIS is the quilt that I will use low volume fabrics.  Since I saw the post on what low volume fabrics were on The Block Lotto I am hooked.  I have been searching for images of low volume quilts on Google, Pinterest, and Flickr in my spare time.  Check out these fabrics I pulled in just minutes!  Don't they look great together?  I hope they end up in the right places in a mystery quilt.  Can't wait to find out.

Now that I see the picture I may have to re-think the light orange.  But it is the fabric that calls for the least amount in the mystery.  I also shy on about four of the fabrics according to the fabric requirements.  If I don't have enough in a clue I will pull something from my stash in that color range.  I'm only about 1/4 to 1/2 yd shy on the ones that I am short.  The ones that I am short on are also easy-to-find fabrics.  We'll see.  At the end of the mystery, there will be a bonus pattern to use up any scraps that are left over. 

Here's the link for the AQS QA:'s%20Mystery%2001/29/2013%2017:09:18&utm_term=

I love your idea. Since researching low volume quilts and making my sample blocks for the (February) lotto, I am thinking of using low-volume fabrics in a new quilt, too.

Even if your quilt ends up looking like the one that's not like the others, it could turn out pretty great.
