Go to the blog (not the email notification, the complete blog). Scroll down to the blog posting from April 5th,-titled April 2014 Meeting. Scroll down past the Quilts of Valour logo. You will see a paragraph about the "London Roads" block from Cathy S. At the end of the paragraph you will see a line that says "click here" for the pattern. Click on the blue coloured "here" and it will take you to the pattern. You can then print the pattern.
Hope this helps,
Maureen
