2018 QUBE and angles QAL info

I’ve started to get questions about next year’s Accuquilt QUBE QAL as we’re finishing up this years QAL and it’s been a BLAST!!
2018’s QAL will be a bit different.
It will be a sampler quilt with different sized blocks!!
-BUT it will still work with ANY of the QUBE sets and matching Angles companion set- YAY!
the finished quilt be just be different sizes Smile
EACH quilt will use 5 fabrics! (If you choose to follow that)- You may want to round UP a bit on the yardage…
a main color A (dark)
color B (dark)
color C (medium)
color D (medium-light)
color E (Light)

I think I'll use white for color A on one quilt and reverse the order so light to dark instead.
I'll use black on another quilt for A (solid)
using a solid is a good idea, it really doesn't matter where the solid is, as the whole quilt will have a scrappy look to it.

If you’re using the 6” QUBES the finished size will be
45” x 51”
Color A at least 1 1/4- 1 1/2yd (EQ says 1 1/4yd)- you can you FQs but this is used for inner border as well so some yardage is needed
Color B 3/4-1yd (or 3FQs)
Color C 3/4-1yd (or 4 FQs)
Color D 3/4-1yd (or 4 FQs)
Color E 3/4-1yd (or 3 FQs)
For inner border you'll need 1/2yd *This yardage is included in color A
For binding you'll need 6 strips so 1/2yd

If you’re using the 8” QUBES the finished size will be
60” x 68”
Color A 1 3/4yd (see notes above)
Color B 1yd (or 4FQs)
Color C 1yd (or 5 FQs)
Color D 1 1/4yd (or 6 FQs)
Color E 1 1/4yd (or 4 FQs)
For inner border you'll need 5/8yd *This yardage is included in color A
For binding you'll need 8 strips so 5/8yd

If you’re using the 9” QUBES the finished size will be
67 1/2” x 76 1/2”
Color A 2yds (see notes above)
Color B 1 1/4yd (or 5 FQs)
Color C 1 1/4yd (or 5 FQs)
Color D 1 1/2yd (or 6 FQs)
Color E 1 3/4yd (or 7 FQs)
For inner border you'll need 3/4yd *This yardage is included in color A
For binding you'll need 6 strips so 3/4yd

If you’re using the 12” QUBES the finished size will be
90” x 102”
Color A  3yds (see notes above)
Color B 1 3/4yd (or 8 FQs)
Color C 1 3/4yd (or 8 FQs)
Color D 2 1/4yd (or 10FQs)
Color E 2 1/4yd (or 11 FQs)
For inner border you'll need 1yd *This yardage is included in color A
For binding you'll need 11 strips so 1yd
-don’t know why the FQs don’t really match the yardage on this size, maybe because the pieces are SO big, so either use yardage or scraps in the same color tone Winking smile

I’ll list a new block every Monday again starting in January and I “think” I’ll finish after 38 weeks… unless I “stretch” it out, we’ll see!
If you don’t have your QUBE sets or Angles companion sets yet get them by going to Accuquilt- link on the right side of my blog.
