I assume that you are just curious...
Touching the outside edge of the heart--it depends. If the patch is at the same level and pushed up against the curved heart boundary, then I might say that it hasn't penetrated the volume (Rule 25). Or I might say that it's dependent on the thickness of a line (Rule 29) and rule it in. If the patch is above or below the boundary and a single atom lies on top/under of the outside edge of the heart, then I will rule it in--it has penetrated the "boundary plane" of the volume.
Touching the lego brick outside the curved boundary is out, in my opinion.

So what would be the situation if say the patch is just touching the outside edge of the heart? Would you think this counts as "Barely In". Since the heart outline is curved it is unlikely that barely touching is on the outside edge but instead a little over or under. So that would be in. Would this be a benefit goes to the team?
What about in/on the lego brick that supports the heart but outside of the heart shaped frame? Would that be considered part of the heart?
