    Thanks for such a great site! I teach a free quilt class 8 or 9 months of the year at our senior center– Roman stripes was requested. I like your method much better than others I’ve seen and much easier to change size! I’ll write my own instructions but will give them the site for your lovely patterns! Thanks for doing this.

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I have been looking for something similar, and I will be able to use this to help me get a quilt done for my grandson. I don ‘t have time now to look at all your patterns, but I will come back again later and look at all the goodies. Thanks again.
