QUBE sampler QAL block 39 and BONUS quilt


Here’s block 39, an EASY one!


You’ll need shape #1, #5 and #8

and two fabrics

I actually flipped the white and colored fabric and I wanted to highlight the direction of the center of the block

Cut out 1 of shape #1 of fabric A

then 4 of shape #5, I cut out a piece and turned it before cutting on the die so the direction of the fabric is correct.

Also cut out 4 of shape #5 of fabric B (white in my case)

and then cut out 4 of shape #8 of fabric B (or white)


make 4 small HST units


Then lay out the block pieces and sew two #8 rectangles to the sides of center block and add the HSTs to sides of remaining rectangles- watching for fabric direction if needed!


Then sew the block together! here’s mine


Do you want ideas for how you should finish the quilt?

I finished ANOTHER quilt, I made this one using the 6” QUBE sets and then a layer cake and started from the beginning and stopped when I ran out of fabrics, which ended up being 25 blocks! Smile

I then found this teal and used white for sashing and skinny inner border and the teal for corner stones and outer border.

I bought more of one of the block fabrics and made backing and binding out of that to finish the quilt.


I quilted a circuit board design all over it


Look how this block turned out, it says “death of me” and the next line says pincushion! ha ha
