Hi, my name is Cauchy09 and I am a scrappy quilter. It is an addiction. It is a labor-intensive obsession that requires regular infusions of raw materials.

My online crafty friends generously send me some of their fabric scraps every so often and I reach saturation. Steady piecing keeps the stash in control, but sometimes I fall behind.

My generous benefactors also pack up the smallest slivers of leftovers that I collect into a giant box and then dip into as the need arises. I take these tiny pieces as a dare and challenge myself to use them all with very little waste. This new project uses 6.5″ jumble squares and results in only dust as waste.

Even so, I caught myself picking tinier pieces out of my own garbage bucket there to save for the next project. It’s a sickness.
