Believe it or not, creating a quilt out of a ton of little cubes can actually be a breeze. It looks like quite an intricate pattern, and from afar it is, but with the right technique, it’s simple!
In order to create this quilt, you will need 4 colors/patterns of fabric. Using solids for the cubes will give it a bit more dimension, especially if you use different shades of the same color.
What you’ll need in total is:
If you spilt the cubes into two sections, it makes stitching and piecing a whole lot easier. What you’ll be cutting to make these strips are diamonds and triangles. That’s it! Simple, right?
Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company uses a pre-made template to create her strips, but you can easily make your own from some cardboard or thick paper/plastic.
Change the colors as you see fit, then get to stitching! You’ll want your triangles to be exactly half of your diamonds (maybe slightly larger for a seam allowance,) and then make one strip.
Your strip will be alternating diamonds and triangles back and forth. Then you’ll do the same thing to another strip, and add those strips together.
Really, it is that easy. Check out Jenny’s video below and see for yourself!
