4-inch Quilt Blocks and the new GO! Qube

I recently received the new AccuQuilt GO! 4-inch Mix & Match Qube set and have been having fun making some small quilt blocks. If you like small quilt blocks, you’ll enjoy using these dies for mini quilts, mug rugs, and other projects.

I can’t believe it has been over a month since I have written a blog post! Too many things going on right now but I think I am getting back into a routine where I’ll be sharing more with you soon.

AccuQuilt GO! 4-inch Mix & Match Qube quilt blocks

There are eight different dies included in the 4″ AccuQuilt GO! Qube Mix & Match set. In this block, I am using the 1-inch square, the 1-inch half-square triangle, the Square on Point, and the 2-inch half-square triangle dies.

Do you like to make small quilt blocks? I go back and forth on them. They are great when you want to make a small quilt project like a mug rug or wall hanging.

You have to be a little more precise on your seam allowances with small blocks. I’m not sure I would want to make an entire large quilt with 1-inch half-square triangles like the ones below!

Here I am using the 1-inch square, the 2-inch square, and the 1-inch x 2-inch rectangle dies.

I’m not sure what I’m going to make yet, but so far I have made 5 of these cute little blocks that finish at 4 inches.

I have a new quilt that I’ll be sharing soon that uses big blocks for a fast and easy quilt. I went ahead and made the same block using the AccuQuilt GO! 4-inch Qube dies, can you see the difference in size? The smaller one is a 6-inch block, I wouldn’t want to make a king-size quilt with that size of a block!

It is so nice to finally have a couch after waiting over 4 months for it. Mr. Mickey has claimed my new red leather couch as long as there is a quilt on it, he will stretch out and really doesn’t want anyone else on it, silly guy! He still loves his Musical pillow too.

  1. The the 1-inch square, the 2-inch square, and the 1-inch x 2-inch rectangle dies fits very well into a concept I am thinking through right now. Thanks for the ideas.

    1. Your color choices are outstanding! I never would have thought to mix those colors like that, but they turned out beautifully! Your piecing is mighty good too!

  2. AccuQuilt has certainly made quilting easier. Love those blocks. I must say that looks like a cozy spot on the couch. Not sure I’d share either. So glad to hear Bob’s mom is feeling better. Thank goodness she is with you guys.

  3. Connie,
    I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one that has fallen off the “regular routine”. I just can’t seem to get it in gear these days. Some of my guild friends use the AccuQuilt and I can certainly see the advantages if you do a lot of cutting. For me, it’s also a matter of space. I just don’t think I can cram one more thing into my sewing room. If I would go for it, it would definitely be for larger blocks. I figured out a long time ago that I don’t like small piecing.

    It’s been such a hard spring. But Chicago went right from snow to swelter. The sofa is FABULOUS. And Mr. M. looks very distinguished on it. Those color combos are so yummy. Three more baby quilts and then I am absolutely stocking up on Batiks!

  5. Connie dear I hoe you have some nice Spring weather after all that rain. So thankful Mom is feeling better. Mr. Mickey looks very comfortable on his quilt and your lovely leather sofa. Those little blocks are very cute but seem very fiddly to sew. I always love your fabric combinations. Glad to see your post dear.

  6. I’m the opposite of you: I love working with small pieces and blocks. I recently finished a twin-size quilt made with 1-1/2″ postage stamps. Some are star blocks with HSTs, others are 64-patch blocks. I love the quilt!

    Thanks for another challenging tutorial, Connie. I like the idea of using small pieces and the intricacies of perfecting the seams and joins.
