Broken Dishes Quilt

In this asymmetrical quilt, crisp solid white sets off vibrant prints in the Broken Dishes blocks. A novelty print middle border and an outer border pieced from tone-on-tones and a small-scale floral work together to draw the viewer’s eye across the quilt top. Fabrics are from the Alphabet Soup Girl collection from Riley Blake Designs.
