Broken Dishes Block

This is a block for the quilt I have been working on - I have all the blocks sewn and squared up! Yeah! This is another 5 fabric quilt (the 5th quilt is the border). The original pattern calls for a solid where I have the light floral. Well, I had the light floral so that is what I used and I like it! I have never used a "biggish" print before for a background, but the colors are subtle enough that I was willing to try.

OK , remember that photo of my winter stash? Well, 2 of the 5 piles are now gone (1 pile for the Trip Around the World, a 2nd pile for this quilt).

Well, that's all for now - my little boy is jumping all over and wants to play!

way to go working through your stash... I think the pattern looks great as background. I love the colours in it.
