Roman Square is perfect for frugal quilting. You probably have leftover fabric from previous projects -- put it to use making a true scrap quilt, where color isn't a requirement.
To make a scrappy quilt, it isn't important to place the block's light and dark bars in specific positions, but do vary the value somewhat from strip to strip, or within the block in general.
Follow the strip piecing instructions to make eight Roman Square quilt blocks. Make additional groups of eight, switching fabric positions or using different fabrics, until you've assembled enough blocks for a quilt.
I've also included cutting instructions for those who would prefer to sew blocks together piece by piece.
Finished Block Size: 9" x 9"
Fabrics & CuttingStrip Piecing: For eight blocks, cut (12) different fabric strips from selvage to selvage, each strip 2" wide; fabric narrower than 42" wide will result in fewer quilt blocks
Sewing Piece-by-Piece: Cut (12) different fabric bars, 2" x 5" each, for each quilt block.
