Block 3 of the 2019 Mystery Quilt Along is Ruler by Sherry Shish @Powered by Quilting! The Sew Let's Quilt Along is brought to you by Partners in Design.
To learn more about the quilt along please see my Introductory Post or see my Quilt Alongs Page if you missed the previous blocks.
I don't remember how we got along without out trusty rotary cutter rulers, but I know that I do not want to give mine up! This a fun pattern by Sherry Shish. To download the pattern, you need to go to Powered by Quilting.
My version used fun fabrics from the Salem Quilt Show by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studios. I like to think that the witches in the guild cast spells on their rulers to make them more useful. For instance, maybe they can make them expand to any size they need so that they don't need so many different sizes. If you could cast a spell on your ruler, what would you make it do?
My Hints and Suggestions for Making the Block
I enjoyed making this block. I hope you enjoy making it as well!

Segment 1 Prize Package
We have a wonderful array of prizes for each segment! Here’s the prize package for Segment 1:
To be eligible to win the grand prize, you need to make all 13 blocks from the whole quilt along and turn them into a quilt or other project(s). Quilt tops don’t need to be quilted, but projects do need to be finished. Share a single post that shows all of the blocks in a quilt top or project. It doesn’t matter how many projects or what projects you make, or how many blocks you use in each project as long as you show that you’ve used all 13 blocks in a finished quilt top, project, or projects.
To keep the contest portion of the quilt along fair and fun for everyone, only quilters that use all of the designers' blocks [in a quilt top or project(s)] will be eligible for the grand prize. Likewise, our segment prizes will only be open to those that make all of the designers’ blocks for that segment.
We are really lucky to have some amazing sponsors on board for this quilt along! Please check them out as thanks for supporting us.
