2018 QUBE QAL- quilt assembly!

The day is here where you get to see the final assembly of the quilt
center!
Have you been having fun with the teaser clues?? (that are totally NOT helping! ha ha)

WELL, HERE IT IS!
sampler QAL
confused? scared? blown away?? ha ha
I told you it was FUNKY!! and there’s no Y-seams but a couple of partial seams which we already did in one block, so it’s NOT hard, just be patient!
Here’s what it looks like with the blocks placed

And here it is with numbers on it.

So let’s get started.
First I sorted the blocks in sizes, just so it was easier to keep track of, I don’t know if that helps you or not Winking smile

Following the chart above, I stuck the blocks onto my design wall
IMG_20180423_104102077
You should know me by now that I like to sew as much as possible together at once, I marked on the layout chart, how bigger chunks would go together, that’s at least what made sense to me.

So the top I could sew the triple geese to block #15, the top middle row I could sew the first two block together, below that #30 and 19, then (2) of #7s on the right and far left it’s columns, then in the middle is 29 and 18 and then the small blocks in the middle are just a long row, and so on… so this is what my wall looked like after I removed these blocks

Here’s #15 with the (3) #11 geese.
Iron seams open throughout!
and if using directional fabrics, pay attention to how the block turns as some are sewn together in rows, others are columns!

here’s 10 and 36 (this makes a cool secondary design if it was just these two blocks in a quilt!
IMG_20180423_133400423_HDR
then 30 and 19
IMG_20180423_133432685_HDR
2 of #7
IMG_20180423_133505086_HDR
#3 and #4
IMG_20180423_133542691_HDR
#8 and 14 (left column)
IMG_20180423_133609007_HDR
29 and 18
IMG_20180423_133638694_HDR
16 and 20
IMG_20180423_133712211_HDR
#9 and 23, then #38 and 13
IMG_20180423_133756942_HDR
#12 and #32 (this makes a fun secondary design too)
IMG_20180423_133833278_HDR
then #4 and 27
IMG_20180423_133900373_HDR
and (2) of #17
IMG_20180423_133923405_HDR
37 and 25
IMG_20180423_133949207_HDR
#31 and 5
IMG_20180423_134052187_HDR
and finally the last (3)#11 geese to the top of #33
(I messed up on this with two of my sets and sewed them to another block, it’s totally fine, the spot can be swapped out with another block in the same size!)
IMG_20180423_134022360_HDR
Here’s what it looks like now
IMG_20180423_134105303
continuing on, add #6 to the right of 10 and 36
IMG_20180424_095914613_HDR
34 and (2) #7s
IMG_20180424_100116894_HDR
8,14, and 35 added to the bottom
IMG_20180424_100250238_HDR
the middle row of 9,23,38,13
IMG_20180424_100436961_HDR
right column is 16,20,24
IMG_20180424_100556309_HDR
then #17s with 21 next to it
IMG_20180424_100739486
and bottom row with 31,5 and 28
IMG_20180424_100856226_HDR
Now to the tricky parts…. toward the top with 30 x 19 there’s a small flying geese under it on the right (see chart) just pin it and sew about HALF way so it’s open up a bit like this
IMG_20180424_103816290_HDR
then the right column with 3,4 and 16,20 and 24
IMG_20180424_104007263_HDR
and the left column with 8,14,35 and 4 and 27
IMG_20180424_104131018_HDR
now in the same way as before, add one flying geese to the top left of 37 (and 25) and only sew half way on the seam.
IMG_20180424_104223899_HDR
so far the wall layout looks like this
IMG_20180424_104249805
now with the row near the top, sew the 34 and 7s to the right of the 30, 19 with the #11 flying geese like this. it’s hard to see that the seam is still open, but it is!
IMG_20180424_105845008_HDR
do the same with the row near the bottom with 17 and 21 on the left of 37, 25 and #11geese
IMG_20180424_105902399_HDR
here’s my 8” qube set sections of this part. it’s funny that I used FQs and just seem to have the same fabrics touching now.
IMG_20180424_110001035_HDR
and with my 12” set, I matching up the same brown and green too on two blocks and they are touching each other too! ha ha
IMG_20180424_110057832_HDR
Now go back and add the top row to the row below it like this
IMG_20180424_123401469_HDR
and the same with the bottom two rows
IMG_20180424_123416723_HDR
it’s starting to come together!
IMG_20180424_123434340
Now add the remainder #7 block with a partial seam from the bottom edge like we did with the geese.
IMG_20180424_125043455_HDRIMG_20180424_125046557_HDR
and do the same with #17 on the bottom unit
IMG_20180424_125117602_HDR
here’s what it looks like now, can you guess what’s added now?
IMG_20180424_125137521
the 29 and 18 to the bottom of the top unit like this
IMG_20180424_131500090_HDR
and then 12 and 32 to the top of the bottom unit like this
IMG_20180424_131521596_HDR
as luck would have it, my 8” version has this red fabric clustered together!
IMG_20180424_131631899
and orange!
IMG_20180424_131718885
now add block #1 to the bottom left of the top unit, now you see why the flying geese was open!
IMG_20180424_133516123_HDR
and block #2 to the top right of the bottom unit
IMG_20180424_133611366_HDR
now add the skinny row of 9,23,38 and 13s to the top of the bottom unit
IMG_20180424_135326438_HDR
then sew the top unit to it as well! now the middle is all one piece (with partial seams open some places)
IMG_20180424_141114364
Now add the side columns, now there’s only the corners left!
IMG_20180424_173440982
sew the top left #15 and geese to the top left
IMG_20180424_193228759
now there’s a long open seam, pin it in place and then start at the flying geese seam in the middle and sew to the outer edge
IMG_20180424_193923771_HDR
Then the seam is perfect!
IMG_20180424_194627865
continue this way with the remaining 3 corners, it’s logical to see how they get sewn into the quilt!
Here’s my 6” QUBE version all done!
QUBE QAL sampler quilt 6in qube
and the 8” version is just funky!!
see how I accidentally swapped #33 and #1.
Now this one and 9” and 12” versions I didn’t see on the wall until they were all done!
QUBE QAL sampler quilt8 in qube
9” version
QUBE QAL sampler quilt9in qube
and 12” version in scrappy batiks
QUBE QAL sampler quilt 12in qube
How do you like them? can’t wait to see yours!!
Have you had fun with this??
there’s still 2 blocks for the borders, but I’ll show different things too.

Here’s blocks from last week and a few guesses for the layout

I took a raffle quilt to another guild this week. The speaker was there to teach how to make and put together odd sized blocks into a nice quilt.
