Has anyone heard of the Broken Stove quilt pattern?

In the early 1960s my mother-in-law, raised in Tennessee, told me about it but couldn't remember exactly how it was pieced.

I've been directed to the Broken Stone pattern, but I'm looking for Broken Stove. It's been a while since I ran a search on the Internet, so I'll try it again. Still, someone besides my m-i-l must know about this pattern.

Did a search using different engines and nothing showed up except a Drunkard's Path set in Robbing Peter to Pay Paul. My mother in law said the Broken Stove is an intricate design with the stovepipe wandering through the blocks.

One of the searches was made at
http://www.quiltstudy.org/search/index.html
Where over 1800 quilts are cataloged, with pictures. The response to my search for Broken Stove:

Primary Pattern: Broken Stove Eye

Ah, well. Maybe I should make my own Broken Stove pattern.

I've not heard of that particular one, but I lived with the pot belly stove in my childhood. They all look alike, if you like to design I bet you could come up with your own and make it work well.

Hey, thanks for the encouragement, Sharon.

I, too, have put in some time with a wood-burner, so first-hand experience can serve me well. Keeping things more simple than my mother in law indicated is a must--my hubby calls me a slash-and-burn quilter.
:P

you can use neckties in quilts the same way you would any other fabric. there aren't any specific patterns that i know of. you'll want patterns that call for fairly small patches. patterns intended for using up fabric scraps are ideal. depending on how sturdy the tie fabric is, you might need to fuse it to another fabric or innerfacing for stability. using an overcast stitch along the edges would be a good idea to prevent fraying if you plan to wash the quilt.

you could also sew the ties together to make bigger pieces of fabric that you could then cut into patches. or for strip/string pieced quilts.

here's a web site i love to check when i want "scrappy" inspiration

http://www.quiltville.com/ (cruise down the left side of the page to find a very nice selection of patters. ALL FREE.)

sew them together at the narrow ends to make fans, then applique them to background blocks.

the sky is the limit.
