Sewcial Bee Sampler - Week #15

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!

Blocks 1-15 in the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew along
I look forward to a new block each week and am happy we still have 10 weeks of block making ahead!  The sewalong community is so supportive and inspiring.  No wonder Wednesday is my new favourite day of the week!

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.

 Pop over to Maureen's blog and Sharon's blog  for all the details!


  1. I knew the next one would be yellow! And how happy does it look with all its friends!? Perfection fabric selection, as usual Katherine! Blue next?

  2. Katherine, the making of this quilt just keeps getting better and better with each week.


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
