Welcome to the GO! Bear’s Paw Block on Board® (BOB®). I made a variation of the Bear’s Paw block to use as a table runner. While I used red and white, my thoughts were of falling leaves. The single "paw" unit of the bear's paw looks a lot like a maple leaf.

Welcome to the  GO! Big Crazy Quilt-10" Finished Block on Board ® (BOB ®). This BOB is crazy fun and easy. Already I have made three crazy quilts with this die—and I love it. The packaging on the die has some great ideas for Crazy Quilt variations. One of the suggestions is to mix the Crazy Quilt blocks with a pieced quilt block. This die makes a finished 10" quilt square. That means it will work with the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10" Block. With that idea, I made the Crazy Quilt blocks and also made some classic Square in a Square Blocks using a set of RJR Sparkle Fat Quarters. The finished quilt is 40" x 40".

Hi, it's Marjorie and I'm sharing a quilt I made with the GO! QUBE™ Mix & Match 10" Block, the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Angles and the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Corners. Adding the Companion Qubes to the Mix & Match Qube creates a wealth of possibilities for quilts and especially for adding pieced borders. The 72 block brochure for the Qube Angles Companion Set and the 72 block brochure for the Qube Corners Set is the perfect starting point. It only takes a block or two from these pattern brochures to create a beautiful quilt. In this post, I will show you how I used a single block from the companion set - angles for the center blocks and added just the Bow Tie from the Corners Qube with a Flying Geese unit to create the pieced border.
