Scrap Fabric Projects: O Hug Quilt Block

Scrap Buster Blocks is a series of scrap quilt block tutorials that are designed to bust through your scraps with the AccuQuilt GO! QUBE Mix & Match block sets. Grab your scrap buckets/tubs/drawers, and let’s make some scrappy quilt blocks!

To finish out the year, I’m sharing three quilt blocks that will combine to make a fun Valentine’s Day table runner. Unlike the previous Scrap Buster Blocks I’ve shared, these blocks finish at 100% Qube size.

These instructions for this O Hug quilt block project are written a little differently to normal so that you can use whatever scraps you might have, regardless of the size of the piece of fabric – if it covers the die you need, even if it’s just one small square or half-square triangle, you’re good to go. This is why the cutting instructions tell you how many you need from each die in total.
