Birds Rule 10 Reveal

Here is my finished rule 10. I loved working with the D9P. I'd never seen that technique before and think I may well use it on my next baby quilt. It's amazing how simple and yet beautiful it is. I did my whole block with it and used four and a half 9 patches. I made my folded insert an integral part of the 9 patch and created abstract flying birds from that. I really like the outcome.


I added the finished block to the bottom of the quilt and really like the way it looks. I still need to do something on the right side to balance out the dark blocks on the left, but I'm sure something will come up that works for that. Can't wait for the next rule.

LOVE IT!! One of the ladies I worked with made a baby quilt with the D9P technique. It was in pastel gingham and was about the cutest thing I have ever seen.
