A while back, I fell in love with this "Broken Dishes" quilt by Crazymomquilts. I had wanted to make one, but like so many times before, I got sidetracked. Then while browsing flickr, I noticed Erin from House on Hill Road had made one too. She used a charm pack, and I remembered that I had one stashed away too. Quickly, I began working on it, sewing together all the triangles. I had planned to give this quilt as a gift in July. Eventually it was pushed aside, in favor of other projects, until I saw JCHandmade's sneak peak of her quilt last week. (and who has coincidentally blogged about it today!!)
I was instantly inspired to use some dark brown linen for the squares. It worked out well for two reasons: 1. I had run out of my remaining charm squares and 2. It was seriously quick. I was able to finish up the quilt in a matter of hours and managed to hand sew the binding on during the Redskins win yesterday. Isaiah was a little disappointed that it wasn't for him. I guess I'll be making him another quilt in the near future.
