I think I'm actually getting a hang of this quilting thing. I'm by no means profesh, but I think I get it.
This month's block had the most adorable name: Broken Dishes Set.
It is known by alternative names like "A Simple Quilt Block" by Orange Judd Farmer in 1903. Also the "Double Square" by the Kansas City Star and the Ladies Art Company published it as "Old Tippecanoe."
Now, I didn't line everything up perfectly, but after figuring out how to use my square ruler I was on the right track. Never again will make the mistake of thinking I can square up something so small without it.
I love this class and I love taking it with my mom. Nothing could ever replace the fun we have piecing these blocks together each month. See the rest of my blocks here. And be sure to visit American Quilting online or for real.

**Note: I cannot share patterns nor reveal any trade secrets of Amy's quilt block designs registered for "Under the Garden Moon." Patterns will be available to the general public after the entire Saturday Sampler Americana quilt is finished in August 2009.**
