2018 QUBE QAL Block 5

First the first time with this QAL we’re actually doing a FULL sized block!
In EQ this is called a mosaic block

You’ll need your QUBE and matching Qube Angles set (see alternate block below for those of you who don’t have the Angles set)
You’ll need dies # 4,5,6 and 16
and fabrics A,C,D and E

Here’s an alternate block.

instead of using die #16, you’ll use dies #3, 4, 5 and 6
follow the cutting directions for most of the block, just instead of the extra #5 triangles and #16, cut out #3 instead


Here’s the directions of the main block
with fabric A cut out (1) of shape #6
with fabric A and C cut out (4) of shape #5 (only do C fabric if doing alternate block)
with fabric D cut out (4) of shape #16 (for alternate cut out (4) of shape #3 instead)
with fabric E cut out (4) of shape #4

here’s the 8” version
DSCF9392
the 9” version has shape #4 as a single shape
DSCF9393
and here’s the 12” version
DSCF9394
start by sewing #5 (C) triangles to the sides of shape #6, iron toward triangles
DSCF9395
repeat with all 4 sides
DSCF9403
now sew #4 triangles to the sides of these
DSCF9404
while doing that also sew remaining #5 triangles to the short angle of #16 trapezoid shapes
DSCF9397
now sew these to the sides of the block and have them look like this
(or all the large #3 triangles instead!)

I’m thrilled at all the participants! It’s SEW much fun to see the different versions of the blocks each week!!
(here she photoshopped/edited the pics so it looks like the blocks are the same size but they are not)
