2018 QUBE QAL Block 12

qal-block-12_thumb1

This week’s block is a 1 1/4 block or 5/4 block (Ha! I’m good at math huh??)

It’s called Sister’s choice and is easy to make with just 2 dies from the regular qube set


#2 and #5 dies

and you’ll use all 5 fabrics!

-if you’re using scraps, then using directional fabrics for any of the #2 shapes would work great!!


with fabric A cut (1) of #2

with fabric B cut (8) of #5

with fabric C cut out (8) of #2

with fabric D cut out (4) of #2

with fabric E cut out (4) of #2 AND (8) of #5

I started with the fabric for die #2 and laid them on the die at the same time and cut out as much as possible at one time

Then cut out the #5 pieces at once as well

Then sew the #5 triangles together (B and E fabrics) iron the seams OPEN

at this point I laid out the pieces how the block should look before sewing pieces together

Then I sewed the rows together

and then the rows together to complete the block like this

Here’s my 4 versions together

the 8” version is FUNKY with these Tula pink FQ fabrics!

and the 12” batik version I used some great directional fabrics too!

They are all great and people are scratching their heads trying to figure out HOW it’ll go together…. he he, not giving anything away yet, there’s 40 blocks including the border blocks, so a long way to go still!
