Roman Stripe

I put my rally hat on and guess what, I completed this Roman Stripe " top" I took the picture on Sunday, I just finished it , I'm thinking I should put a border though, it could easier to quilt, the "bias" edge could be trouble on a " long arm"

It is getting quilted by none other that Joyce, my best friend who now lives in Maine, Joyce are you reading this I hope so,...get ready and be thinking what design
are you going to use.

I had to unearth the blocks from the bottom of the"UFO" dungeon, I participated on a swap long ago I forgot what year, but wait, perhaps some one of the members of Common threads could come to my aid and tell us the age of the blocks, I'm thinking,.. 05

Do you have a photo of the UFO from the Dungeon? I might be able to help you with the date...or decade... :)

Just had a thought on the bias edges. I remember reading on a long armer's site that she recommends straight stitching 1/8" in on all the edges before putting it on a long arm if there are bias edges exposed. I don't remember what year this was, but I remember that I didn't participate it in for some reason. Could be because I had a tiny baby or one on the way.
