QUBE sampler QAL block6

It's time for block #6 (The end of the first row)
QUBE Sampler QAL 2017 Block6
For this block you'll also need the companion set like last week!
You'll need shapes #5, #8 and #10
and two colors of fabrics plus white
From white cut 2 of #8
From color A cut 2 of shape #10 ( both right sides up if directional fabric- I didn't)
From color B cut 2 of #8 and 4 of #5

Sew the small #5 triangles to the angled sides of the #10 signature block
and also sew pairs of rectangles together
this is where I realized that the signature fabric was flipped but I decided to keep it this way.

Then sew block together

and this super easy block is done!
(If you don't have the companion set, you could use a large square instead of the signature block or add small squares to opposite corners of a large square and then sew down the middle and trim)
here's a picture of the first 6 blocks = 1 row

I am not doing a batik 12" version this time again, but could possibly do it with a large square instead of the signature block, but I chose not to.

at the end we'll shuffle the blocks so it's okay if some colors are touching or seem clustered together
