At least some of the cutting can be done with an 18 or 28mm rotary cutter (red lines above).

USE SCRAPS OR YARDAGE

Custom Page Sizes allow us to use fabric very efficiently. Use scraps and nickels!

Use this Clamshell shape with any pattern, like the Clamshell Quilt in Kaffe Fassett's Museum Quilts(2005).  

Love the lines. Quilt more!
