Reversible quilt: disappearing nine patch variation with prairie points and rubik’s cube inspired back


Charm squares and scraps project.

This quilt, on one side, is made with charm squares (Hunky Dory by Moda) and Moda Bella in ivory for the background fabric. The other side uses fabric scraps on a green Anna Griffin fabric.

Assembly instructions for this side of the quilt are in my previous post about this quilt.

Rubik cube inspired back of quilt

This is the back of the disappearing nine patch variation with prairie points border quilt made using fabric scraps.

The big blocks are inspired on this quilt though I used my own measurements.

Measurements for top and back of quilt

Finished top: 52 1/4 x 67 1/4 inches
Finished back: 57 1/4 x 70 inches

The squares in the cube blocks are 3 x 3 inches and the sashing is 1 x 1 inch before stitching.

Cut the rest of the pieces as per picture below. Note: The 2 1/2 inch strips between the alternating patterns are 70 inches long.

The cube blocks are placed in an asymmetrical way as per picture below.

The sides of the back are 11 inches wide before stitching. The pieces are made of alternating scraps of fabric in different widths (1inch to 2 1/2 inches each) and lengths up to 11 inches in total.
