Jessica's Qube Sampler - Blocks 1, 2, & 3

Well, I said last week that I would share Jessica's progress on her new Qube Sampler Project, and she has made some significant profess . . . so, here it is.     You will recall last week, she had finished one block using my new AccuQuilt cutter and Go! Qube Dies and that was the Diamond Star.

She had cut out the Spinner block from the Go! Qube Book, and now it is all sewn together as well.    And look at that perfect point in the middle.   Eeek, I am just so proud of her.  She is really trying so hard to sew with precision, and really takes her time in the stitching and pressing, and boy does it show.

And she liked that block so much, she picked a variation of it, called Turnstile also from the GO! Qube Book.  And again, with the perfect point in the center.  She has that little pin trick for lining up points down!!!   And the pinning and pressing precisely is getting easier and easier with each block, and that makes me so happy.

She has her fourth block cut out, and this one is the most complex she has done so far, so I am excited to get her stitching it together.  I am sure she will nail it :)   And doesn't she just do a great job mixing and matching the fabrics!!!  I love watching her sifting through the charm packs and layer cake to find just the right fabric for each part of of the block :)  

We have made a set time when she gets home from school to sew, so hopefully, I can keep sharing more finished blocks.   And she is even talking about wanting to go to a retreat with me and take some classes . . . I am on cloud 9 over here ;)  More of Jessica's Qube Sampler blocks soon!!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. Jessica is going to be a great quilter! Her colors and fabric choices are spot on! I still struggle with those! A mother/daughter and even grandmother retreat would be so much fun!

  2. So jealous! (and happy for you and Jessica)

  3. She’s motivating me to get my cutter and cube out and play with them more! Great job!!

  4. Lucky mom and lucky daughter. Enjoy!

  5. These look terrific! I wonder if she thinks about sewing all day at school? haha
    I love each on of these. Very well done
