a quilt series


Have you ever found yourself repeating certain blocks or themes
so that you've developed a series (or obsession !) without even planning it?
Well I've suddenly just realised, over the years,
I have been accidently working on a 'broken dishes' series.
Want to see?


'Broken Dishes' #1 was made way way back, probably in the late 80's I think.
Using 30's itty bitty prints



'Broken Dishes' #2
a variation
donated to Vanuatu March 2015



'Broken Dishes' #3
Gifted to my granddaughter



'Broken Dishes' #4
I made these HST's into broken dishes again but set them as stars.
Liberty fabrics
Still machine quilting this one


'Broken Dishes' #5
using 'outback wife' fabrics



and most recently . . . 'Broken Dishes' #6
the vintage version


. . .  and 'Broken Dishes' #7
still very much a WiP, a happy clash-y mix of vintage & new




The traditional layout/design is call Broken Dishes
~ pieced entirely from half square triangles. 
So easy to make

Do you have a 'series' lurking in your sewing room too?

  1. Yup, that's a series, good and proper. It's interesting to see how you have progressed in your approach from the first quilt and I'm looking forward now to seeing #7 completed.
