Planning the Quilting of Road to Oklahoma

And now for my favorite part….the QUILTING.  For this block, I use both the walking foot and the free motion foot.

If you have an idea on how you’d like this to be quilted,  please share!!

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 2 – Road to Oklahoma – Marking & Cutting Fabric

​​I LOVE the fabric used for this block – especially the blue with the little gold flecks. I love a bit of bling!!💕

The cutting for this block is pretty straightforward. If you go to my previous blog post, I have written out the cutting dimensions for you.

As mentioned in the notes for the video, if you’d like to use the same fabrics that I’ve used, you can purchase a fat quarter bundle from Christa Quilts here.

Next on to BOW #3 Part Three where we plan our quilting strategy AND quilt the block.  See you there!!

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 1 Intro – Road to Oklahoma

In this video,  variations of the Road to Oklahoma four-block layout are shown.  As mentioned in the video, the final four-block quilt measures 20″ x 20″ – a perfect size for a table topper or a wall-hanging.

Cutting directions for EACH of the 9″ x 9″ blocks:

  • Cut 4 squares 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″  (green blue and white fabrics)
  • Cut 2 squares 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ (green and blue fabrics)

Tune in to Part 2 where we will cut and sew the block.

Next, on to Part 3 where we will plan the free motion quilting, plan the walking foot portion of the quilting AND actually quilt the block.

Something Totally FUN Coming up soon!

The 4th of July week, I am going to do something FUN and a little different!  I’m going to demo how to use this REALLY cool new product from MODA – the Cupcake Mix Recipe Cards. (I will be using recipe cards #4 in my demo.)

As usual, cutting, sewing, PLANNING-the-quilting AND quilting will be on the agenda!!

If you’d like to follow along and cannot find the recipe cards in your local store, you can get them here on Amazon.   

You will also need a Print Charm Pack (I have one in my stash = YAY!!! ) and a Solid Charm Pack (I’m using white which I got from Amazon here.).  Of course you CAN certainly cut your own 5″ squares!!!

Moda Cupcake Mix #4

This is gonna be FUN – The 4th of July week!!  roll of caps

Hmmmmmm wonder if I need to buy some sparklers?  How about some “snakes“?  As a kid (since fireworks were illegal) we used to take a whole roll of caps and put them on a rock and then smash ’em with a hammer….. “cheap seats” firecrackers.  I am surprised I can hear today!   They were LOUD!

Anyhooooo…..check back THIS SUNDAY for the BOW
