Whose house is that? If it's yours, I'm jealous.

Maybe there's a broken stove inside and we should conscript this dwelling to the furtherance of the Quest. Let's all meet there with empty cocoa mugs and demand sequestering until Spring.

:twisted:

Could this be it? It is called Broken Stone. There are directions, if this is the one.

Broken Stone was suggested when I first began the Quest for the Broken Stove. It and Broken Stove Eye [what in the world is a stove eye and how does one break it?] may be the only patterns that we can turn up. I am not giving up just yet, though the trail is getting faint.

I downloaded the Broken Stone photo you posted. Thanks for taking the time to add to my "body of knowledge" about Broken Stove. You never know about the parentage of some quilts--perhaps Broken Stone inspired some old quilter way back when, and she named her version Broken Stove.

I can tell you what a stove eye is. On a woodburning cook stove, the top has round cast iron "eyes" that would correlate with the black part of the pattern. They can be removed to get a more direct, and thus hotter fire, under your pot. Some fancy ones have several sizes of eyes, but generally they are 6" diameter. I've done a little cooking on a wood stove. Just thank God for gas and electric stoves. Trust me. :?

I found this one at the International Quilt Study Center:

http://www.quiltstudy.org/search/index.html?search_type=standard&search_action=keyword&totalresults=1&offset=0&maxresults=10&detailresult=1&sortby=PatternPrimary

Another "Quilt Stove Eye/Robbing Peter to Pay Paul" one, but it does have a good picture.

Hope all this fame isn't going to your head! LOL

Ah, so *that's* what they're called. And you need the hook-like thingy to lift them out. And when you cook on the stovetop over an open eye, the bottom of the pan gets covered with soot. Yes. A broken stove eye would be a hassle, nuisance, and damned inconvenient.

Or do I have it wrong? Does "eye" refer to the hole in the stovetop itself, or the round insert that covers it or is removed as needed?

Why does the Broken Stove Eye pattern not show a broken eye, but a whole one? Am I looking but not seeing?

Okay, I'll give it a rest for the time being.
:mrgreen:

The black part, where the eye would go, looks as if it is missing, and the eye is open. The nice shaped pieces in between are the same shape as the pieces they put in the stove between the eyes, when they are close together. Clear as mud, huh.

Good deal!! That stove is definitely broken, but pretty. I'm glad for ya. I hope it is the right one. That is a variation of Robbing Peter.
