Broken Dishes Quilt from 1950

This Broken Dishes quilt by Dorothy Lambert White is from The Old State House website. This site features  quilts from Black Arkansans. I like the busy look of this scrap quilt. 

Take a look at the quilts in the various categories here. Lots of inspiration there!

Here's one more. You know I can't show just one! This is Double Wedding Ring by Essie Jackson, c 1950.

Thank you, Karen! I had saved the photo of the Broken Dishes quilt a few years ago, but forgotten where it came from. I'm off to look at the site now!

I saw a old quilt recently with an unusual layout of what I think was broken dishes. I will have to go and get a picture of it and send it to you. The quilt was very beat up but the design was cool.
