What is the old adage? "Rules are made to be broken" Most of the time, rules are a good thing, like stopping at red lights, do unto others and so on. But, in the quilting world we do it differently. I promise the "quilt police" won't come after you, (however, if you are entering a quilt show, you might want to re-think your decisions).
5 Rules You MUST Never Break
Where did you learn about quilting? Was it a quilt handed down from your grandmother? OK, maybe your grandma taught you to quilt. She probably started quilting before there were all the modern tools like rotary cutters (circa 1985), plastic rulers, printed patterns and quilt shops. What? They quilted before rotary cutters? Yes, my grandmother (Annie Scarlett) inspired me with her creativity. When I declared that I was going to make a quilt, she laughed and sent me a box full of teensy tiny pieces of feedsacks that were already cut and ready to make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt.
