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.

Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Sew together a solid white triangle and a pink novelty print or assorted print triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press seam away from solid white. The triangle-square should be 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 64 triangle-squares total.

2. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together four triangle-squares in pairs. Press seams toward assorted print triangles. Join pairs to make a Broken Dishes block. Press seam toward top row. The block should be 8-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 Broken Dishes blocks total.

3. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out Broken Dishes blocks in four rows, rotating every other block 180° so seams abut. Sew together blocks in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.

4. Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 32-1/2" square including seam allowances.
