I made this quilt with the 6" Qube and GO! Qube Companion Set-Angles!

 

It measures 30" x 36" when finished and I used FQs!!

I initially did this sketch in EQ8 and the yardage was:

A. White 1/4yd

B. Light Blue 5/8yd

C. Blue 5/8yd

D. Orange 3/4yd

and E. Black 1/4yd

 

Fat Quarter

 

But I changed it to Fat Quarters!

So A. White (1 FQ)

B. Light Yellow (3 FQs)

C. Blue (3 FQs)

D. Pink (3 FQs)

E. Purple (1 FQ)

The 6" QUBE shapes are, #1,2,4,5,6 and #16

(For cutting when I have several FQs I shuffle up the FQs when I cut them out and try to cut even numbers of each whenever possible to equal the total)

With shape #1 cut out 15 white

 

Fat Quarter

 

With shape #2 cut out 60 yellow

with shape #4 cut out 60 yellow and 60 pink

from shape #5 cut out 180 in blue and 60 in purple

from shape #6 cut out 15 in blue

and lastly with shape #16 cut out 60 in pink (Isn't THIS a fun shape??)

Here's all the pieces cut out

Let the fun begin!

You'll make 15 blocks of the star block and 15 of the angled block.

I printed out the EQ sketch and marked where I wanted certain fabrics, especially the pinks, but you  can do it totally random!

For the Angled block, sew (4) purple #5 triangles to sides of blue #6 on point squares (15 times)

 

Fat Quarter

 

Then add the QST #4 triangles, here I made each block have the same outside triangles, so 5 of each of the 3 FQ fabrics (15 total).

Now add matching sets of the pink #16 angles to the blocks!

And lastly the corner #5 triangles, I love how the dog ears are cut off and it matches perfectly!

 

Fat Quarter

 

Make 15 blocks like this. I again matched up the corners to be all the same fabrics, but the yellow and pink is not the same on all of them, they just match individually.

 

Fat Quarter

 

This is where my sketch then came in handy as I laid out my blocks on a design wall and figured out where I wanted the pink QSTs to match up to create the secondary pattern well.

Then I started the star blocks.

Start by making lots of flying geese units (60) like this, randomly or not, that's up to you.

 

Fat Quarter

 

Then sew corner #2 yellow squares to two geese and the other 2 geese to a center white #1 square per block

 

Fat Quarter

 

and sew the blocks together (15 total)

Then I sewed the top together into a 5x6 grid

see with my "planning" ahead the pinks are matching up :)

 

Fat Quarter

 

Since I was using FQs for the top I had some left and used my 2 1/2" strip die and 2 purple FQs and cut out 8 strips total then I sewed them together and alternated the fabrics and I had JUST enough- you may need to cut 9 strips if using this method.

 

Fat Quarter

 

Again, here's the quilt all done!

I did a dense meandering all over it, as it's a baby quilt and will probably be used a lot!!

 

Fat Quarter

 

I even made the back scrappy too by cutting up 5 FQs.

If you quilt on a domestic machine you may be able to just use 4 FQs but I had to have a strip in the middle since I long arm quilt and just need more space all the way around for my frame :)

 

Fat Quarter

 

Well hope you like this quilt and I think this new angles die that's part of the new companion angles set is just too cool!

I'll come up with more ideas with the other 3 dies in the set soon!!

See you then :)
