Handiquilter Ruler of the Month Club 3

After a month break our local Handiquilter group came together again and we were given the latest rulers of the ROM Club 3

Pillbox Ruler and Petal Pusher Ruler

The Pillbox ruler is quite large, 2 1/2 x 6 1/2in and I am a bit unsure what to do with it, so I tried different arcs that you could do in a sashing or border (first line)
I have an overall design in mind for this one where you go up and down the pillbox at different length, however have not tried this as yet, as I was keen to play with the petal pusher. Did a little sashing design with the Petal Pusher as you can see above and then moved on to the motifs

Here are the 2 motifs that the two shapes will give you, a rounded flower design and a leaf-type design. Very handy to put in a charm square set up as the design comes out to just over 4 in.
Then you can vary this a bit and put the two shapes together...also nice
You can play around heaps with this and also make your design larger by simply putting a circle in the middle
Lots and lots of different opportunities and designs you can come up with. Thoroughly enjoyed playing with these. Except for the last motif where I stuffed up a bit noticed again how exact these rulers are. My little flower designs came out very neat and clean, so maybe I am getting better at this. Mind you, stitching on the inside of the ruler is always a bit easier and they were really nice to hold.
 I stopped here for the minute as I was working on something completely different and had to stop playing.

If you are interested in what you could use these rulers for also visit the Handiquilter ROMC page where they have some videos demonstrating each ruler of the series.
