I am such a fan of Bertha Gray Hayes and her charming overshot designs. This runner is based on her very modern-looking Linoleum design. What I love most about it is that each side is quite different in overall look than the other, so one side has a more traditional overshot effect, while the other is pure whimsy with blocks of flowers.
