    Hi all,
    I thought I had sent this request in but apparently I did something wrong. So, if you see the request twice, forgive me.
    I would like to know if anyone has the pattern for the Roman Holiday quilt? If so, please may I have a copy? Thanks much,
    Donna

    It is a beautiful pattern. I am interested in it also if anyone has it. I couldn't find it online. Thanks in advance.

    I goggled Roman Holiday quilts and did come up with the one listed below. I believe if you go to her site you may be able to find it. The PDF does not have picture of the quilt but does give the instructions. Hope this helps.

    There's another quilt that I saw posted here, made with the Roman Holiday fabrics. It was beautiful. I don't know which quilt you might be referring to - but I did read the link provided above by Jenny Haskins, and it's not the same quilt as the one posted on here recently. (Although I'm sure it's beautiful!)

    For the one posted here, you can search and type in Roman Holiday and that should pull it up. Otherwise, I'm no help :)

    Thank you and I did see that one and printed it but I don't believe it's the same quilt as posted on qb. It was a lot of embroidery and I don't have an embroidery machine. However, I may take the instructions to my quilting store and maybe she can translate it for me. Thanks much.

    I think it was just a pattern--$9 is the price I remember. the quilt looks fairly simply except for the few scattered blocks that have the itty-bitty triangles in them but even those wouldn't be too hard if they are paper-pieced and there are only a few of them.

    It looks more tricky than it is because the blocks are diagonally set & cut at what looks like a 45 degree angle. Starch well and it should be ok. I believe Kaye Woods has a tutorial that shows how to strip piece 45 degree angle blocks and I know she has a "View & Do" Diamond ruler.

    I thought it was odd that Moda wasn't giving away this pattern but I couldn't even find any mention of the Roman Holiday fabric on their web-site much less a pattern using it. Maybe it was a pre-cut kit at one time so now they can't honestly give it away since some people might have paid for it.

    I just finished a diamond top that I saw in a picture using the Boondoggle ruler. It went together fairly easily and the diamond ruler was very useful. I used a lot of starch and was careful piecing together and i must say that all my points are perfect! The diamonds are sewn in diagonal rows. You may be able to make your own pattern using this tool by just looking at the picture.
