I have returned to working on one of my HST projects because I was tired of moving it from place to place in my quilt studio! I posted about these blocks in April when I was trying to figure out a layout - click here to read about it.
The block design is called "broken dishes", and the idea that came to me when I was sewing the blocks was to sew 4 broken dishes together to look like dinner plates.
Although I liked the look of the plates on pointe, the ohio star block jumped out at me too much, so I decided to just keep them in a straight setting. I like the secondary pattern when they are joined together, but then it lost the look of plates, so the final decision was straight set, with sashing.
But what to do about this sashing? Do you like any of these sashing options? I leaning towards the middle row - cornerstones of scrappy diamonds.
BTW - Bonnie's new quilt uses the same broken dishes block and lots of string piecing and it is gorgeous!
