I'm sewing a set of four cubes with different geometric shapes appliqued to each face. The faces are flannel and the shapes are cotton. They are:
-Blue circle sewn onto pink with brown thread
-Pink octagon sewn onto blue with purple thread
-Yellow triangle sewn onto green with red thread
-Green square sewn onto yellow with orange thread
-Black heart symbol sewn onto white with grey thread
-White star sewn onto black with grey 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 getting my wisdom teeth out--my face was too sore to lean over a sewing machine.
