Cutting Instructions for the Roman Squares quilt block

After the nine patch block, I guess the Roman Squares quilt block is the easiest block to cut. Just strips of fabric, connected into squares. Start by making a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It will make you more confident to continue and make the whole thing.
And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Finished Block Size Cut 4 rectangles from the two dark fabrics Cut 2 rectangles from medium and light fabric
6 inches 1.5” x 3.5” 1.5” x 3.5”
9 inches 2” x 5” 2” x 5”
12 inches 2.5” x 6.5” 2.5” x 6.5”
