The rose is "here in a new version-the sweet, old fashioned flower gone modern in the approved fashion of the moment," she wrote of this quilt block.
Nancy noted that a Cubist Rose quilt could "be done in yellow or rose with a natural leaf green for stem and leaves."
Unfortunately, the Cubist Rose is another quilt block design that I can not find any old patterns for or quilts made from.
My block is an interpretation of Nancy Cabot's newspaper column drawing. It's a little difficult to know exactly how many fabrics she intended to be used in the block because it's newsprint and therefore the block is shown only in shades of gray.
I decided to paper piece my 6" Cubist Rose block. The pieces of my pattern look like this-
In the photo above, I laid the pieces out in three rows because that is how I sewed the block together after paper piecing each section.
This next photo shows how the rows are pieced. The center row is pieced in sections, like I have shown, before being sewn into a row.
If you haven't tried paper piecing or have tried it and don't like it, you may like my method of paper piecing which I feel is a little easier than the traditional method. You can find my tutorial here.
