Today’s the day! It is time to cut and stitch Block 1 of the Qube Workout. Instructions can be found in the menu at the top of the blog. There are cutting instructions for each Qube size and some cutting notes at the bottom. Piecing instructions are also included for the blocks. MAKE 4 BLOCKS.
Here are the blocks I made with the 12″ Qube. I am using a very rich burgundy color that looks darker in the photos. And the background fabric is actually a pink batik. This is a single block and it finishes at 12 inches (12-1/2″ before being stitched into the quilt).
And this is all four blocks laid out together. I still have to stitch them. Using the 12″ Qube makes a very large (24 inches) center block for the quilt. And you can see the beautiful star shape that the Broken Dishes block makes when the blocks are combined.
I must admit that I have always been a little afraid of triangles and matching those corners, but these blocks have helped me conquer that fear. I hope you will feel the same way after you finish these blocks.
