Red , White & Wonderful Roman Holiday .........

Thought I would share with you next quilt project ! RED , WHITE & WONDERFUL . ..

I know you are thinking a Christmas Quilt in April ? I guess I was just in the mood for a RED quilt and this one is Wonderful !

I first saw this quilt on Thelma's blog last January and just loved it. Thelma was kind enough to mail me her pattern when she was done with her quilt. The fabrics used are a older Moda fabric Roman Holiday. I searched and searched for this fabric and then found it on Ebay ! All of the fabric you see here is Roman Holiday except for the floral. The fabric I am using for the floral is Fancy HIll Farm Robyn Pandolf. I think it works well for the center blocks!

I cut all of my fabric Tuesday and made great progress piecing on wednesday.

I now need to sew the center together and then the tough part for me will be the 2 mitered borders . Yikes ! Never done that before !


  1. I loved seeing Thelma's quilt come together and will look forward to seeing yours! Red is good to work with any time of the year and we all need a Christmas quilt or two!

  2. I love your fabric choices - they are so beautiful! Can't wait to see how this quilt turns out!

  3. Love your fabrics! Look forward to see your finished quilt. Reds are one of my favorite palette of colors.

    Special Easter blessings to you and your family. Hugs, Carolyn
