101 Patchwork Patterns Block 7

Road to California

I almost forgot to publish the block this week. This is called Road to California, Jacob's Ladder, or several other names. It is also colored or configured differently, but with the same name. I found a nice article about the origin of the block at a site named Patterns From History.

This block is made from strips like we did in Block 1, and half square triangle blocks like we've made several times. I forgot to take pictures as I sewed the block, sorry. Please ask if you have any questions making it.

Here is where we are at on building our quilt. I can't wait to get the first round done.

Don't forget to join us on the Summer Sensations Blog Hop. The Fat Quarter Shop has given a $25 gift certificate to be awarded each day of the hop. Visit our host, Marian at Seams To Be Sew, for the schedule and winner information. My day is coming up on Tuesday. Look for a quick easy project that would look great on your Summer table, inside or out.

Have a good weekend!
