Sneek peek for penny pincher 10 swap

I am planning the next penny pincher swap. I will likely post it in February 2008. I went looking for fabrics in my stash to see how many I had, and realized I really didn't have much for this swap, so I thought maybe others might need a bit of a head start to start looking through their stashes or purchasing if they have to. Anyway, Desi (dizzydez) recommended this block and I fell in love with it. It is on quilter's cache, and is called Road to California. We will be modifying the corners to be red in two of the corners instead of background colors. We will be using the colors of the American flag. Red, Blue and we will use white on white for the white. This makes a 12 inch finished block and is really easy to make. Here is a sample pic.
