2018 QUBE QAL block 13

qal block13

Nothing unlucky about block #13, it’s the easiest block in the whole quilt and you’ll be making 2 of them!

A four patch is so simple and versatile!

This is the smaller block that you can make with the QUBE set, so it’s a 1/2 block sized.

You’ll use fabrics A and D and die #2 (small square)

Since we’re making 2 blocks, cut out (4) of each fabric with die #2

Sew one of each together like this, if you’re using directional fabrics, then lay out the pieces like this before sewing together.

Iron the seams open.

Have fabric A at the bottom left (and top right)- but it really doesn’t matter.

then sew into four patches

and sew the 2 four patches together into a row that’s 2x4 like this

Here’s my 4 versions.

My 6” and 9” version have fabric A be the darkest fabric, where the 8” and 12” version have A be a light fabric, and these two also use directional fabrics!

easy peasy, right?

Here’s blocks from last week’s participants
