Broken Pottery

I finished my little broken dishes blocks, and sewed up this little quilt.  It is hard to decide what to name it...so I decided on Broken Pottery for lack of a better name.  The blocks are finished at 3inches, so the quilt measures out at about 24 inches square. I machine quilted it with a cross-hatch  and put a vine in the border.  It does not show up at all, but I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Sometimes it is fun to just start sewing blocks with no idea of what I will do with them...play time!
And the quilt below is a better picture of the quilt on my dining room wall....Starry Night from Jo Morton's book Hearthside Stars.  This was a project at a quilt retreat a few years ago.  Perfect for fall decorating!


On Friday, I am off to Des Moines to the AQS show.  Anyone else going?  It would be fun to meet up!
Looks like another beautiful fall day...enjoy!

You know, I think I have more trouble coming up with a name than I do with the fabrics! I am usually so thrilled with a finish, I think I have to come up with some profound name to equal the excitement of finishing. Maybe I need to rethink that. Whatever you call it, it looks wonderful!

That's a good name for your new little quilt. I love the bigger quilt, it gave me an idea for another quilt.

Love the broken dishes quilt. I just finished a swap of 4" BD blocks and can't wait to find time to throw them on the design wall and play with making my own little quilt!!
