Block 26, Cut Glass Dish was a slow block to construct as it has [too] many template 13s, but as time goes by I am finding matching the tiny pieces is becoming easier. Careful stitching is required!
I think these fabrics illustrate the beauty of a cut glass dish which would have been a prized possession in the 1920's. Trifles laced with sherry and covered in whipped cream with luscious strawberries picked from a patch not far from the back door would appear on the farm-house table at Christmas and other family celebrations. Reflections of the feast would reflect in the faceted cut glass.
