Roman Square Project

The blocks in this layout measure six 1/2 inches square. There are fourteen sets of fifteen blocks each. This will become six 5 x 7 block comfort quilts for cancer patients. Each quilt will have a six inch border and be just wide enough so that the backing doesn't have to be pieced.

I think my plan is going to be successful. These blocks took no time at all to piece, as long as I paced myself - a new skill that I am learning! Each set of blocks used 12 1/2 inches of three fat quarters. That was the goal - to use up fat quarters in an appealing and productive way.
