There’s been a little shift in this QUBE QAL, it’s still sponsored by Accuquilt- after all it’s using their QUBE sets!!
From now on, I’ll show the blocks here on my blog, it really is a lot easier for me this way, hope you don’t mind…..
Here’s block #2
This one only needs two shapes!
#5 and #7
I picked two other fabrics and solid white and cut out 8 of #5 in the two colors each (I picked a pale grey and a blue and white print)
(I have marked on my dies how wide to cut the fabrics to fit on the die, shape #5 is 3 3/4", and then I start with the largest die and cut out what I need and then use the leftovers for the smaller dies.)
Then I cut out 4 each of ONE of the colors and white of shape #7 (you want to fold the fabric so you get two sets of opposite shapes)
Then I sewed sets together (2 of each in opposite directions and different color combinations
and then sewed them together into blocks (2 of each)
now comes the fun part! figuring out how you want the arrows to turn!
This is the way I picked (which matches the EQ sketch above) but you can do it any way you want :)
that's it! block #2 is done
and here's my 12" batik version
You can link up below with either last week’s blog or this week’s block
