Wishes Quilt Along: Broken Dishes Block

Welcome back to the Wishes Quilt Along! We hope you LOVE sewing this quilt! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we are so thankful for all of your donations thus far! You have helped us reach 35% of our goal so far, and we know we can push it all the way to 100% with your help. Join in this quilt along and help us make a difference! Today we are excited to introduce the fourth block in the program, Broken Dishes!
Are you ready to get started? Start by downloading the FREE Broken Dishes PDF Pattern.

Once you have the pattern downloaded and your fabric cut, watch this video tutorial for a closer look at piecing the Broken Dishes block. You can piece your half-square triangles using the traditional method, but in this video we use 3 1/2" triangle paper to construct ours. Let us know which method you use!

After piecing this block, please head to our Wishes Quilt Along Make-A-Wish Donation Page to contribute to our cause. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which will be matched by Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop for a grand total of $20,000. Every dollar helps, so please contribute whatever you can! We encourage you to donate after downloading each free pattern.
We are all sold out of Quilt Kits using the Wishes collection by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics, but you can download the Fabric Requirements PDF and choose your own fabrics for this quilt! We love seeing what collections you choose, so be sure to post photos to the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group!

We hope you enjoy sewing the Broken Dishes block and pick up some tips for piecing half-square triangles along the way. Post your photos and see what everyone else is sewing on the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group or on the Wishes Quilt Along Facebook Group. Stop by next month for the debut of the Log Cabin block!
