Scrap Fabric Projects: X Kiss Quilt Block

Are you on the hunt for ideas for your next scrap fabric projects? 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, or drawers, and let’s make some scrappy quilt blocks!

To finish out the year of scrap fabric projects, 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 the 100% Qube size.

These instructions 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. Now, let’s get into the scrap fabric projects: X Kiss Quilt Block.
