my description of ["ultimate" cube's] coloring is:

still has six solid colors
if we visualize a standard cube as a box with 6 stickers, 1 to each
flat face the the ultimate cube has these 6 stickers translated and
rotated so that 4 of these squares come together on a center cubie
with the diagonal of each square laying along the edge of the cube.

Hm, there are 12 edges on a cube. That leaves half of them unaccounted
for. What do they get? (Note that you also have to shrink the 6
stickers, beacuse the face diagonal is longer than an edge.)
