Broken Dishes Quilt (See also: 3 February 2010)
Experience has taught me that the steps I follow in designing a quilt are often not the best steps to follow when I'm sewing it.
I get 3 identical small square pieces, 8 identical medium sized rectangular pieces, and 4 large square pieces.
What if I look at each of these in turn and divide them into smaller pieces?
The center of the rectangle can be made using 4 Broken Dishes blocks; so you may be wondering why I used Pinwheels and strips instead. This arrangement guarantees a straight edge along the inside length of the strips; the other way this edge might become disjointed.
