Broken Dishes
free quilt block



Broken Dishes is a simple, classic block. It is often used in combination with other blocks, but can stand alone nicely. Each block is made of 4 half triangle units. A lovely scrappy quilt can be made by sorting fabrics into 4 piles: extra light, medium, medium dark, and extra dark and arranging as shown below.

This block lends itself nicely to a quick quilt, using an eight inch block and the Diagonally Sewn Squares technique. Make lots of half square triangles and arrange them on a design wall.
