I'm sewing a set of four cubes with religious symbols appliqued to each face. The faces are flannel and the shapes are cotton. They are:
-Blue fish symbol sewn onto pink with brown thread
-Pink Alpha and Omega sewn onto blue with purple thread
-Yellow INRI ("Iesus Nazareanus Rex Iudoreaum": Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews) sewn onto green with red thread
-Green IHS ("In Hoc Signo": In this sign) sewn onto yellow with orange thread
-Black Chi Ro symbol sewn onto white with grey thread
-White cross sewn onto black with greay thread.
I adhered all the applique pieces with Steam-A-Seam 2 to avoid having them slip during stitching. After the appliqued pieces were stitched on, I sewed the cubes together. The pink and blue sides, yellow and green sides, and black and white sides are opposite each other.
I would have finished these sooner, but I had to take two weeks off after I had my wisdom teeth out, which made it hard to bend over a sewing machine.
