    What quilting rules do you break?

    I cut all kinds of things with my fabric scissors, including cardboard and paper. I seldom take breaks. I never put my location on quilt labels.

    How about you?

    All of them. Or, so it seems.

    I frequently use calculated naiveté. Cut with scissors and don't measure. I like the old school imperfection (even when I have to make it happen). :0D

    I don't really follow rules either. I'm not afraid to put my own twist on things and make it mine.

    I break lots of them. The biggest one I break is not sewing my blocks into rows. I break color rules too.

    I almost never wash fabric first. It just bothers me to put the pretty fabric in the washing machine :)
