Cauchy Complete: Scrappy Quilt Manifesto

Creator: Cauchy Complete, blogger

Purpose: Guidelines for Scrappy Quilt Design.

The Scraptacularity Manifesto

• I believe that one ought to use every last piece of fabric. Nothing goes to waste.

• I believe that no scrap is too precious to slice and dice, although some cute fussy-cuts can capture my heart.

• I believe that one need not confine a quilt’s palette to one designer’s fabric line, although sometimes that’s pretty fun to do.

• I believe that a quilt’s color palette need not be limited at all, although sometimes that’s exactly what you want to do.

• I believe in (carefully) mixing fabrics (cottons, silks, linens, etc) and textures.

• I believe in careful, sound construction, although the appearance might be delightfully wonky.

• I believe in squaring-up often and using steam when pressing.

• I believe in simplicity among chaos.
