I was inspired to make this design when I went to Italy. I found the mosaic floor tiles beautiful, and found that they would translate well to quilting. This pattern is also a variation on a Traditional Roman Coin. Therefore "When in Rome" was born! Enjoy!
This pattern works great with scrap charm squares as well as charm packs. The most important piece is your focus fabric however. It will take center stage, so pick a fabric that you just LOVE, and would hate to see cut into tiny pieces. :)

I am one of those blessed individuals that had an amazing teacher at a young age. My grandmother taught me everything I know about quilting, and it's her inspiration that led me to pursue my passion.
That passion also led me to obtain a fashion design degree from Western Michigan University, and it has been an adventure ever since.
