I just started this weekend and I have 4 out of the 111 completed. I think it will be a long journey but hopefully there won't be any detours in the road.
Broken dishes. I like the secondary pattern of pinwheels you can see in this quilt. I've made a large broken dishes quilt out of fall fabrics and may make another someday.
When my granddaughters were 3 1/2 years old I invited a friend and her granddaughter (and daughter and mother) who had come to visit from Alabama to lunch at our house. I set the table with my collection of Cabbage Rose depression glass before our guests arrived and told the girls to stay away from the table so they didn't break the dishes. When the guests arrived granddaughter Kayla introduced herself and then proceeded to tell everyone to be careful and "don't break the dishes". We all had a fine lunch of quiche and strawberries from the garden. And no one broke any dishes.
Speaking of breaking dishes...the name of this block is "Broken Sugar Bowl". While I was making the block I wondered why in the world it had such a name. But now that I've put it on point I can see why.
That's what I strive to have. But I actually have a rainbow garden with weeds.
And finally...this one is called "Strawberry Basket". Again, you can't really see it until you set the block on point. I have a large strawberry patch. Last year we made strawberry jam that will probably last us the rest of our lives, ate a lot of them fresh from the garden and my husband made melomel which is a mead with fruit added. It's delicious but a few bottles exploded in the wine rack. Darn. And, if we gathered our strawberries in a basket I would think they would get punctured. I gather them in large plastic bowls. Did I mention that the deer eat a lot of them? Darn again.
