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.

Cut 2 rectangles from medium & light fabric

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
