Hi everyone, this is Connie Kresin Campbell from Freemotion by the River. Have you seen the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Angles? I couldn't wait to try it out! I had fun using this Qube Companion Set to make this fast and easy table topper. Working with angle blocks has never been easier as all of your pieces are dog-eared and cutting is so accurate!

Finished 19" x 29"

 

There are four dies in the Angles Companion Set:

  • Triangles in a Square-Center
  • Triangles in a Square-Sides
  • Kite-Center
  • Trapezoid

I have always used these shapes in my quilts I've made over the years, and it is so great to be able to use these AccuQuilt dies now.
