Challenge Rules for May week 3
Week three rules are going to be fun. Get ready with your rotary cutter and ruler and let's begin.
Stack both your blocks together evenly so the appliques are sitting on top of each other. Be sure not to have one upside down - although, that could result in an interesting design.
Now make 2 or 3 cuts through your blocks which are stacked together, making sure you cut through an intersection in the center each time. Note: the intersection does not have to be exactly in the center, it can be anywhere on the block as long as all cuts go through it.
Once you have made the cuts, separate the sections and interchange the two blocks so every alternating section is from one block.
With block sections alternating, place each block on a piece of interfacing or batting and backing - which ever you prefer. Use a decorative stitch or wide zigzag to stitch along the cracks (cuts) so the block comes back together.
Stitch around your applique shape using any method you choose (you might want to layer it with batting and backing if you haven't already done so yet) and send in a photo.
