Rule 9 Complete

Here we go with Rule #9
The windmill is my 3-D portion. The teaser shows it better than the whole block, because it is zoomed in better. The top of the windmill is a separate, small block, and the base is a larger block, so they fit together by adding to the sides of the top block.
This was really fun, and a challenge for me, as I have never done this type of 3-D before. I knew what I wanted to do, but doing it was harder than I thought it would be. I think the circle was what made it more difficult.
This is not what I had in mind when I started the block, but it took a life of it's own, and I like how it turned out.
As you look at the blocks all together, you can see that I added more to this rule when I put it together with the rest of the blocks. The pond just did not look right, so I added some rocks along the top, and took away the stark line.
If you can't zoom in enough to read it, the hexie has embroidered around it "Daughters of Dorinda Mystery 2011 The colors of Autumn in the Country.
I changed search engines and I think you can put comments in now.
Also, this weekend we are doing our "Sisters Get Together". Marie, Dorine, and I are getting together (and bringing our husbands too) and I am so excited. We try to do this every couple of years, and it is so much fun! We always try to do something we have not done before, and we intend to just see the beauties of Utah this time.

Your windmill is great. I like your addition of the rocks, too.

Watching these quilts grow and develop is more fun than I ever imagined!!

I like the addition of a windmill and the pond. They are great accents to an already beautiful project!
