Today’s the day! It is time to cut and stitch Block 1 of the Qube Workout. And this is the instruction sheet: 03 Block 1 Broken Dishes Qube Workout. 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.
