Cut Glass Dish Runner
A lovely bouquet of daylilies graces the dining table and showcases one of my favorite quilting designs, the Cut Glass Dish Runner. I used the vintage color known as cheddar for this sample along with the old quilt block called cut glass dish. The block uses tons of Thangles, a wonderful quilting tool invented by my very talented sibling, MB Hayes.
I call this table runner the "cheddar runner" and think that it is a very Wisconsin-ish and dairy-ish way of acknowledging my Wisconsin roots.
I have a selection of green fabrics chosen for the next version of this runner that I want to sew. Green fabrics will accent a pot of ivy in the same way that these daylilies partner with the wonderful glow of the cheddar fabrics set against the warmth of a wood table.
This runner pattern can be found in my book, Tapestry of Texture.
