Cut Glass Dish Quilt Block

Janet Wickell

Cut Glass Dish is a quilt block pattern that was originally published for the Anniversary Sampler Quilt. Use the block to make your own sampler, or for any other quilt.

Follow the instructions to make half-square triangle units with my quick piecing method, or choose another assembly technique (triangle squares should measure 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" when complete).

I usually cut oversized squares for these units (for this quilt block I would cut 3 to 3-1/8" squares), and then use a square ruler with a diagonal line to trim my completed units back to the exact size after assembly; instructions are included in the half square triangle tutorial.

Finished block size: 12" x 12"

Fabrics shown are for clarity. Use tone-on-tones and an assortment of prints, but choose fabrics and colors that work with your quilt's theme.
