    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.

    Oh - I have no vested interest in the Boondoggle ruler company - just found it easy to use.

    That is a beautiful guilt. Hope you find a pattern for it. From the looks of it, the one I found on google is not even close.

    You know, I've been thinking about this beautiful quilt shown here on the board with the Roman Holiday fabrics (of which I have plenty, but didn't have any idea yet how to use them...until now!). I think any pattern that has the larger diamonds, would work. Then it would just take a couple of borders. Does this sound right to everyone?

    Maybe I can find a pattern somewhere that has the larger diamonds, just to give me a few rough directions, then I can adjust/add on from there. Any ideas?

    This is the one on the board that was posted: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-57911-1.htm

    Maybe she can give you some tips about the pattern.

    The larger diamonds can be like normal strips but you just cut a 60 degree angle on each one. The trick is the diagonal setting. It makes it look more complicated than it really is.

    The actual link for the web page to purchase the pattern I found is: http://www.thewoolenneedle.com/index2.html Scroll down just a little bit and click add to cart.

    I had previously posted just the link to the picture of the pattern and received a pm asking how to purchase it. I didn't even think about that when I posted the link to the picture. I am not affiliated with nor have I been a customer of the website I found the pattern at.
