My post was supposed to go LIVE on Accuquilt’s blog last Thursday, but they are having technical difficulties, so I figured I’d show the block here too, to get everyone going!
This is week 1 of the QAL and this block is pretty easy!
I showed in my last post that I'm using a 20pc FQ bundle, from this bundle I chose 2 fabrics and then solid white and with my 8" QUBE set I cut out 8 of #5 in white, with shape #2 I only need 2 of each color but the die has 4 on it and that's okay, I might need it for a later block, then I also cut out 2 of shape #3 of each color.
Then I sewed the white #5 triangles to two sides of 4 #2 squares (2 of each) as shown
and then sewed a large #3 triangle in opposite color to the edge of that to get 2 x 2 blocks
then sewed these into a block
and that's it!
block #1 is done!
After reading comments on the last post and also on the Accuquilt facebook group, several said they would try the 12" QUBE set and some said they didn't have the companion set, so I decided to use my 12" QUBE with new fabrics and I don't have the companion set for this size and didn't really pay attention to how much fabric I had but chose a nice batik bundle from Island Batik and I'll use this one for as far as it goes :)
These batiks are brown, black and a bit of blue
I cut out the shapes in the same way, but did notice that #2 is a single item on this die.
here's the 12 1/2" block done and notice that I matched the square with the big triangle instead of doing the opposite colors.
do you want to keep the blocks secret until we work on the blocks of do you want to see a layout now?
When Accuquilt’s blog is working again I’ll show the blocks there again and also have a linky on MY blog, so whenever you finish this block in your size and color link up below! We’d love to see the eye candy
