2018 QUBE QAL block 26

qube qal26
Block #26 is a big one it’s 1.5 sized and uses the QUBE and the companion angles set
It’s called an Arkansas snowflake (don’t ask me why or where that name came from, I just know the name from EQ)
You’ll need dies #1 and #4 and #13 and #14 from the angles set.
then fabrics B,C and E
With fabric C cut out (4) of #1 and (4)right side UP and (4)right side DOWN of die #14 (works well to fold the fabric, then you get half of each.
With fabrics B and E cut out (2) EACH of #13 and (2) each of #4 (I know that most of the die sets have #4 as a big square cut diagonally twice, just put the two extra pieces aside for later, we might use them or we might not…
start by sewing the #14 triangles to the sides of the #13 triangles, iron the seams open! and also sew two sets of #4 triangles together- to make a QST block
Finish the triangle in a square blocks and the center QST block
I laid out the pieces are started sewing together rows
Then sew the block together
like this, still ironing the seams OPEN!
QUBE QAL block 25
Here’s the 4 versions together
the 12” qube version is HUGE (18 1/2”)
notice the 9” version- top right, I used a directional fabric so with the #4 cut outs I removed the two side pieces so the fabric would be facing the same direction in the block.
