Westering Women - Block 7 - July

This month's block is named Courthouse Rock, for the outcropping of the same name in western Nebraska. It is the familiar Log Cabin variation more commonly known as Courthouse Steps. At a distance, my version tends to appear more like a square-in-a-square with the alternating light and dark fabrics.

I was happy for this easy-to-piece block this month. Choosing the fabrics took longer than stitching the block!

We should be entering the mountain states next month. Looking forward to seeing what block Barbara chooses to feature next.  More information on the Westering Women BOM is available on Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog.

  2. These are so pretty. I know what you mean about the choice of fabrics taking as long as the sewing sometimes.

  3. Just realized when I saw this post that I haven't seen others posting their July blocks. Must be a busy month. I like the way your value placement has made it a square-in-a-square, and yet the variety of fabrics gives it depth.
