Block number eight is called Broken Dishes. It was another fun and easy block to make. There aren't too many variations possible with this block with the exception of changing around the lights and darks, which I did.
I love the colors in this block. Unfortunately my camera did not pick up the true colors. I am a quilter, not a photographer. You will notice when you put four of these blocks together, the pattern can't be altered no matter which way you turn the blocks. Many of the other blocks I have done will give you a different design on the quilt depending on which way you arrange the blocks. It is not so with this block. There is only one design.
This would have made a beautiful full quilt, but I chose to make a Lovie Lap Quilt with Pockets. The Lovie Lap Quilt is my own design after visits with my grandmother in the nursing home.
You can check out other Lovie Lap Quilts on my site. So that's block number eight. On to make quilt number nine.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
