|'Peace and Plenty' quilt block pattern (McCall's Quilting)|
'Peace and Plenty' - a classic block first published around 1945. My version in the homewares collection uses vintage 1930s fabric prints, in a traditional red, white and blue colour scheme. What does this say about me? That I love bold use of colour, striking combinations, perhaps?

Below - a simple but effective version, found on Pinterest. Hope I've got the attribution source correct. These colours would look great in my beach house .... if I had one!

My 'Peace and Plenty' handmade ceramic quilt bowl - same pattern, but different effect. What does this say about me? That I'm going through a dotty phase? (Absolutely!)

I love the traditional patterns, but I am the first to admit that I am no expert. I'm a potter, not a quilter.
So, if any quilters out there have made any of the patterns I have used for the Homewares range, I would love to show them in future posts. They are 'Peace and Plenty', 'Summer Winds', 'Bear Tracks' and 'Right Hand of Friendship'. Just drop me an email about it - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful, creative, fun week, putting your own unique stamp on to your work!
