I started to work on the quilt with the pastel fabrics that I posted yesterday,
I love antique quilts and the serve as inspiration for new quilts. I was searching the quilt index and found this beauty
The pattern is called Roman Stripes, or Rainbow Quilt.
It is a very simple block but I love the look. I decided to try making a block with both halfs of the square striped, but in different directions
cut the strips 2.5 inches wide (2.5 inches is the size of a jelly roll of fabric so the pattern would be a great way to use a jelly roll)…and here is how it looks.
here it is with 4 blocks
I am pleased with it!!….I think it is going to be a great Easter quilt.
Teddy is not sure…he is looking at it very closely
He needs time to think about it.
Now that I have the design set I can start to think about weather I want to add a border…and will it be a pieced border…what color(s) and think about the binding….all the things that really finish a quilt.
More pictures to come when I make some decisions and progress
