Encore - Broken Dishes
Phew - I don't think I've ever been so close to a deadline - it's 11.38 pm here in the UK! Yesterday evening I stencilled the dish on to my background fabric and couldn't get to my machine to piece then cut apart this quilt until late this evening.And even now I see that in my haste I've transposed a couple of the pieces!
My encore is linked to my Fine Living piece. The sentiment that that piece brought to the fore has niggled at me and continues to wander around in my mind. Then I thought of the quilt block 'broken Dished' and thought of the broken lives of the clay miners and others who work in desperate conditions so that we can have our 'Home Comforts'.
The piece was created in the same way as Fine Living:
The quilt was then cut apart and put back together again to create a broken dish!
