The Broken Dishes Quilt Block

 

Variation #1

 

layout of broken dishes quilt blocks

 

 

The Broken Dishes block is another easy 4-patch (or 2-patch) quilt block. 

 

As you can see from the picture to the left,  there is nothing in this block but 4 half square triangles. 

 

Decide what size you want to make your blocks, and review the half square triangle page if necessary.

 

This is a great block to use up scraps of fabric.  Be sure and reverse the value if you want to place these blocks side by side.  Notice in the above picture  that lights are placed against darks on the outer fabric.  If you put lights next to lights, or darks against darks,  the fabrics visually run together, and the blocks do not look as pleasing.

 

However, if you use sashing between the blocks, you can make them all the same way.

 

This is a great block to use up bits and pieces of fabric.

 

Use good piecing and pressing techniques making your blocks and sewing them together, and you will have a great scrappy quilt.
