RULE RELEASE 9

It's time for our Rule Release 9, so here we go:


RULE:  Use different sized blocks that fit together. For instance, use a 4" finished block and 2" finished blocks as their measurements fit together easily.

TECHNIQUE:  Something 3D - it actually has to stick up on the quilt like flower petals or embellishments.  (This won't be a flat 3D like we did before.)

SIZE:  At this point our quilt should measure 37-1/2" tall and  43-1/2" wide.  Block # 9 will go on the top or the bottom of the quilt.  This block will be the width of the quilt and 12 inches tall finished, so the unfinished block will be 43-1/2" wide and 12-1/2" tall.


When the block is finished post a picture of the block, then sew it to the top or bottom of your quilt and post a picture of the whole quilt.


DUE DATE:  We will have one month to complete this block.  You may begin posting teasers July 18, and the full release can be posted August 1st.  The next rule will be released August 8. 


Here are a few ideas of what can be done with 3-D:
