June Mini Madness: Block 15 Road to California

Today we are at the halfway point!  This month is really flying by, it will be no time at all before we are at the end and can put the blocks together into a top.
Today's block is Road to California.  Another combination of half square triangles and squares, this one is not going to be difficult at all!

For a 3 inch block, cut two 1 7/8 squares of red (cut in half diagonally), three 1 ½ squares of blue, and two 1 7/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) and two 1 ½ squares of background.

For a 6 inch block, cut two 2 7/8 squares of red (cut in half diagonally), three 2 ½ squares of blue, and two 2 7/8 squares (cut in half diagonally) and two 2 ½ squares of background.


Sew 1 ½ inch half square triangles (2 ½ inch for 6 inch block) from red and white triangles.  Arrange triangles with blue and white squares as shown and sew in a nine patch.

Match up those points carefully!  I had to sew this one a second time to get a better result!
Looking much better, my seam allowance had wandered off by just a few threads.
What a difference that small amount makes in the end result...
Finished!  

The third page of instructions is available here:  Page 3

Have a great Monday!

I’m a so enjoying this project still! I’ve been writing down the instructions for each block and hope to make it up again in different colors. I stuck to the red, white and blue, as I had a lot of scraps leftover from another quilt I had just finished.
