Patchwork Cube

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Patchwork Cube Tutorial Link to website or photo missgioia.com/2007/03/patchwork-cube-tutorial.html What are you most proud of? It seems impossible to make. I just think it's a great conversation piece, either as part of your room decor or a child's toy. I may even make another for my grandson's cat, Chewy! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The instructions are pretty simple, just piecing the squares together. The tricky part is the inside seaming. My best advice is when you get to step 6, read it thru first, paying special attention to the first sentence, and then just follow the instructions without overthinking it. Have faith, it works.

What you will need

  • 3 different cotton fabrics (I used 5" pre-cut squares that were on clearance at Jo-Ann Fabrics
  • poly-fil stuffing (about 36 oz.)
  • basic sewing stuff.

Ve-r-r-ry In-ter-r-r-es-s-s-ting. as Artie Johnson might say. It does look like a puzzler. Great job!
Gram-I-Am answered:

I have made a grab ball and I found that interesting now I will have a go at a patchwork cube.
Gram-I-Am answered:
That's how I felt when I saw it! Even as I was making it I thought...this is never gonna work!

Thanks. ;-)
MomGrandma asked:
It's a big huge 'doughnut-hole' play block. Any wine recommendations? lol Just like life, you don't see too far ahead for a reason...take it one step at a time. Actually sounds fun, but this is coming from a Sudoku fan. I'm going to make 3 HUGE ones so my granddaughters can crawl inside to watch their favorite movies. Geez, that's going to take a truck-load of fiber fill...YIKES! I need a whole other life to do all the amazing projects I'm seeing here on Craftsy. Thanks Gram-I-Am!
Gram-I-Am answered:
A nice big glass of your favorite wine! Yes, it was a good lesson in taking things one step at a time. I also love Sudoku. I also thought about making a giant one for my grandson...til I thought about the stuffing $$. Although the local JoAnns usually have a great Black Friday sale...so we'll see. ;-).
