In the evenings lately I've been piecing some Broken Dishes blocks together. It's one of the wonderful old patterns that can be put together in a variety of ways. In the photo above I've laid the blocks all going the same direction. In the next one they alternate.
They can be put as alternating blocks with plain ones or sashing between too. When I envisioned this quilt I had the first layout in mind, so I'm going with it.
I found I'm four blocks short after I arranged the quilt on the floor. I must have miscalculated (again) -- back to the cutting table!
