This month I'm participating in A to Z Challenge, where 100's of bloggers around the world challenge themselves to write every day for the month of April, working their way through the alphabet. I'm sewing a patchwork block for each letter of the alphabet. Each day I will share that block and a little about the block and direct you to where you can find a tutorial for that block on the Web.
Today's block is called California.
The pattern for this block came from Quilter's Cache here.
The pattern is not marked in the index on the website as being an orginal design (Marcia Hohn's original designs are marked with a star) and it is marked at traditional however I can't find any other reference to it, or information on it apart from a quilt block made from the pattern on the site. When put together the blocks make an interesting sub pattern which looks great... yup another one for the One Day pile
There is also one called California Star
I chose to make my California block using a similar colour scheme to that used by Marcia. I think its worked out well although I am not so sure about the mixture of the glasses and the deers in the fabrics. I am determined to just use fabrics from my scrap boxes so I am a bit limited.
