Moving a UFO Along

One of my goals for this month is to look at my UFO list and pick something to finish, or at least to move forward. I've chosen Roman Road.

Roman Road was a BOM from a local shop from about 4 years ago. Each month we got a kit for the main block (the star blocks) and an alternate block. My friend Cherie suggested a modification to the alternate block and I liked her version better. Then I adapted it further for the border, which is not at all like the shop sample. The flimsy is 73" square.

The flimsy was finished in February 2018. My long armer friend Sandy was going to quilt it for me, but she was in the process of moving to another state so that didn't work out. Earlier this year after she was settled into her new home and welcoming commissions, I sent Roman Road to her and she returned it with beautiful custom quilting when we got together in Paducah in April.

Now it just needs to be bound and labeled. I prepped the binding, which is one of three constant fabrics in this quilt, used in the alternate blocks. I'm hoping to get this quilt completely finished this month.

I have friends in Arizona that I plan to give this quilt to the next time we're out there. They are very special quilt-worthy friends, and these colors suit them and their home.

It'll be nice to have Roman Road off the UFO list.
