The tumbling block or cube quilt.
When multiples of cube shapes are used, it is called a tumbling block quilt pattern and may be a large or small size. Variations of shapes or colors can be very effective.
There are many examples of how to make a quilt using the cube on the internet. Videos and patterns are available as well. Try designing your own design using draft paper and colored pencil with a lot of negative space. Lots of variations are possible. Think about a child’s or baby quilt with letters or suitable prints and colors.
One can use 3 hues, dark, medium and light or a spectrum of colors and prints keeping in mind to use light, medium and dark in each cube to make it appear three demential.
There is more than one way to construct the cube and its variations. Use whatever works for you and perhaps learn something new.
A class will be provided in the fall for those who wish. have fun with this Challenge. Lots of room for creativity!
Your quilts will be due for display next year, March 1,1923!! They will be on view for the month in the display windows in the hall of the CAC building.
