This relates to:
Quelque(s) vs (un) peu de = A couple/a few vs a bit of/few (indefinite adjectives) -

Hi Rob,

peu is the opposite of beaucoup. And quelques is "a few". Maybe you could say peu is "few" and quelques is "a few"  

However you want to translate this into English, it's best to try grasp the meaning in French first. Often it isn't possible to make a 1:1 correspondence between English and French.
