Russian Rubix

Description of Class

This is a great quilt to make. It looks like Y seams, but it’s not. It isn’t quite snowballs either, but the way you set it together is not hard, just takes a little thinking to format so when each block comes together it looks like a ring of octagons that interconnect to create a secondary loop.  It’s very fun and fascinating to watch it come together.  It looks great in many colorways from scraps, to very planned palette. Light background or dark, both look great. You can make one block as a pillow or it’s a beautiful baby quilt or exquisite on a bed.
