QUBE sampler QAL block 25

sampler6b

It’s week 25 and this block is a fun one!

sampler25

It’s assembled at an angle- diagonally, but otherwise easy!

You’ll need QUBE shapes #2,4 and 5

and 3 colors plus white

With background color, cut out 4 of #2 squares, 4 of #4 triangles

from the 2nd color cut out 4 of #4 and 4 of #5 triangles

the last color, cut out 2 of #5

also cut out 2 of #5 in white

(Of course lay as much fabric as you can on the die at a time before cutting

looking at the picture below, sew the 2 sets of small triangles together and then the 4 of the leftover small triangles to sides of background squares

now sew the triangle sets with the white triangles together into a small QST block.

Also sew large #4 triangle to sides of the 4 sets with the background squares as shown

Now lay out the block pieces and sew the background triangles to sides of two of the background square sections and the remaining two background odd shapes to the center QST block

Iron toward center and background triangles

Here’s some eye candy from the participants so far

Betty posted this on FB that she went on a retreat and finished this Quilt of Valor quilt and used several of the QAL blocks, look at how they are off set, that’s a neat quilt!!

and here’s block 24 from Renie, she decided to stop her current 30s blocks and start again with batiks so she’ll have 2 quilts at the end!
