I also ordered some charm packs at the same time - these are a great way of increasing your fabric stash without spending too much money. Some of the most versatile are the Kona ‘cotton solids’ from Moda. I particularly like the Sunrise selection for spring:

But enough of fabric (can you ever have enough of fabric?) and onto block four of the Wishes Quilt Along. This block is called “Broken Dishes” and it was a lovely easy make. I cut my squares 4½” to make the half-square triangles (slightly larger than the pattern stated) and then trimmed them to size. I used a scant ¼” seam and the finished block is a generous 14½”.

Oooh-er ..... I am beginning to sound like an advert for the Fat Quarter shop as the Wishes sew-along is also organised by them. But rest assured - I am not affiliated to them in any way - I just love their products.
Sew until Monday when I hope to have the next two blocks completed for the Patchiqué quilt ......
