Share a Modern Look To Create Triangle in a Square Dance Quilt with the 10" GO! Qube™

Sep 25, 2018 9:00:00 AM / by Marjorie Busby

Hi, I'm Marjorie and I have to say that the more I use the new AccuQuilt GO! Qube™ 10" Mix and Match Companion Sets the more I love them. It is so much fun to see how the blocks go together and the wonderful quilts. In this post, I'll show you how to use a single block and add a two-inch border to create a beautiful fall quilt. These blocks bring a modern look to the traditional quilt block shapes that we all know and love. Turn the blocks in different orientations and you will get even more quilt designs. I warn you, this is addictive!

For this quilt, I used fall colors from Timeless Treasures Tonga Batiks and the Shuffle quilt block from the 216 Block Brochure. By using four blocks across and six blocks down with a two-inch border, I got a lap quilt that is 44" x 64" finished. This quilt uses only three shapes from the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10" Block and the GO! Qube 10" Companion Set-Angles. The GO! 2½" (2" Finished) Strip Die was used for the borders and binding.

TIP: The free download of 72 block Patterns Booklet for the GO! Qube Angles Companion Set on Accuquilt.com provides endless quilting project possibilities.

How to add borders to this quilt includes the following:

Measure through the vertical center and left and right sides of the quilt and average the three numbers. Use that measurement to adjust the length of the vertical borders and cut to measurement. Stitch the borders to the quilt.

Measure through the horizontal center and top and bottom sides of the quilt and average the three measurements. Use that number to cut the horizontal borders to size. Stitch the borders to the quilt.

Quilt as desired.

Bind and Enjoy!
