March Block: Broken Dishes Stars

In 2017, we will be making 8 inch (finished size) blocks. This month we’re making a variation of the traditional Broken Dishes block, using lighter and darker blue fabrics combined with white.

Peggy made this one.

Guidelines and the link to the block directions are in this post:


Blue Broken Dishes (Star) In March


The maximum number of blocks you can make and enter for chances in the drawing this month is the usual NINE blocks.  If you make multiple blocks … you can use the same white background in multiple blocks and use the blue fabrics in multiple blocks as long as each lighter-darker blue fabric combination is unique.

The target set size for our winners will be 48 blocks.

Although there will be no Quilt-Along in 2017, I have a quilt idea that I think is pretty interesting (and might be used for a sampler quilt). Check out  The 3 Bears – A Fill-in-the-Blocks Quilt Pattern.
