Time to add a little sunshine to my Sewcial Bee Sampler! Broken Dishes is the block for week 15 of the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew along, hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell (for the free download to make this block, visit Maureen's or Sharon's blog).
|Broken Dishes is Block 15 in the Sewcial Bee Sampler|
A simple block to make and a wonderful chance to use a colour that I don't turn to very often. Since this block is small with wide borders, I thought it would be fun to choose low volume fabrics that included a hint of yellow to make the block appear larger. I'm happy with the result!

Thinking about joining the sew along? It's not too late! The blocks are great skill builders and Maureen and Sharon are doing a wonderful job of inspiring and cheering us all on. You will find lots of helpful tips, too! Instructions for each block are well written, so it's beginner friendly and for those of us with a bit of experience, we are certainly free to play a bit with things (as I have been doing by making extra pieces in several of my scrappy block versions ;o). Some participants are even making more than one version of each block, which really is tempting! Sew along at your own pace, so even if the timing isn't the best for joining in and stitching a block a week; know that you can always download the PDF for each block so you have the information when you are ready to start sewing.
