Progression - annotated:

Blues 12 - VVII ending - - Blues

Other Blues progressions

You may also notice that some players hold the V7 chord for two bars in bar 9 and 10, and then go directly from V7 to I, without going via the IV chord. The last line will then be (without turnaround):

V7 - / - / - / V7 - / - / - / I - / - / - / I - / - / - /

Chuck Berry often uses this form. Listen to Chuck Berry's classic «Johnny B. Goode» for an example. Chuck Berry usually do not use a turnaround.
