Rubik's Storage Cube

The last one!
I made all my Rubik's projects, all spread out over the past six months or so. Here's the final project I have to share this week:


A Rubik's Storage Cube!
I made it just after my obsession with my Storage Cube Tutorial, when I made a bunch of them all in a row. This one is a little different, in that the seams are all enclosed inside -- rather than having that decorative binding on the outside. Didn't want to mess with the integrity of the cube, of course!


It still folds up nice and flat, although I was careful not to cross any of the stitching for the folded sides over the colored squares -- it's all in between them.


Perfect for storing all sorts of geekery!

Look at all those high tech toys in your storage basket made to look like the Rubik's Cube! The irony is fabulous!

I love your blog, and have been getting ready to do the 1st quilt ever. I ordered fabric online to match your baby boy quilt (Riley Blake all star). When I received it I was surprised to find it was flannel. Will I still be able to do the quilt? It's for my SIL who is expecting her first baby. I looked online a bit and found some people saying you should definitely wash flannel first, and change the seam allowance since flannel frays so much. I was so excited to start, but now I am totally overwhelmed and afraid it won't work out. I would love some feedback if you have any advice or experience piecing a flannel quilt. Thanks!
