Three dimensional quilting , rather a misnomer.

As I wrote that title , I thought, huh? 
The definition of a quilt is 3 layers of fabric, bound by stitching through all 3 layers. 
Hopefully, the maker will see the wisdom in finishing the edges. 
All finished quilts are 3-d but just like a most words in the English language, 
 3-d can mean many things. 
In this case , I mean adding dimensionality with another layer of fabric. 

I am teaching a class at City Square Quilts in Hoschton (  pronounced  H-shh-ton ) Ga.

10 Minute Quilt Blocks by Suzanne McNiel 
Below is my sample. 

The book is available for purchase at City Square Quilts. 

There are a lot U tube videos of Ms. McNiel making these quilts , they are wonderful , you never need to buy her book. Wait , what ? 
The  book is worth it if you want to make larger quilts and don't want to figure out how much fabric to buy . Lots of folks  believe Cratsy and U-tube are all anyone needs to learn a craft and they are great. There is so substitute for a hands on class. 
I have played with and somewhat mastered the technique which has been around for a long time. I have seen it called everything from  3 dimensional Bow-ties to  Cathedral Windows.
