3 Dimensional Quilt Blocks are one of the funnest blocks to sew.
Be warned– they eat up more fabric when you sew them….but they add so much fun to the fingers and eye that they are worth it!
3-D – they are just that.
The points stick out, there are little pockets or flaps….they send the flat boring quilt block into a frenzy of dimension.
In the past I’ve sewn more than these 4 quilt blocks. But, these are my favorite and they can be added in or they can replace your quilt block in your quilts.
Example– if your quilt pattern has pinwheel quilt blocks, then simply substitute this 3-d pinwheel quilt block in it’s place.
If you are making a long strip of flying geese, then every once in a while toss in a 3-d flying geese. Not all of them have to be 3-d, but a few could to add a little more fun and interest to your quilt.
