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.

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!!!
This is gonna be FUN – The 4th of July week!!
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
Is mastering free motion quilting or walking foot quilting on your todo list?
EACH week you’ll be encouraged to cut, piece, DESIGN and stitch free-motion and/or walking foot quilting patterns on a NEW block.
Join me in the basement with a cuppa and let’s get started!
(No affiliation with Dunkn Donuts. Just liiike them! 💕) Don’t worry…. we only get them about once a year. 😜
I love this block! Tune in on Sunday to check out several four-block combos This is sooo much fun! I hope you’ll cut, piece, plan and quilt along!
These colors just make my heart sing. I cannot WAIT to get started on this BOW! The patterns and videos will be eady…… I’ll meet you back here on Sunday!!
Today, however, I’m resting after eye surgery – YES, I’m THAT old. Don’t worry though, I’ll be up and at ’em in a day (says ME).
For now, I hope you are enjoying these BOW quilt alongs as much as I am. 🙂
See you soon to enjoy a cuppa together AND a new BOW.
PS. LMK if you have a favorite block you’d like me to work on!!
Two of my FAVORITE quilting tools:
I love using these pins to baste my quilts rather than the ‘stinky’ spray baste. Click on the image for more details.
Also, I ALWYS wear my Machingers Gloves whether I’m walking foot quilting or free motion quilting. Again, click if you’d like more info.
Be sure to watch to the end! I show a “cheap seat” work around for the plexiglass “tool” I demonstrated in a previous video.
If you like to chain piece like I do, you have got to get one of these gadgets. I love, LOVE mine!! (I actually have TWO!) Click on the image for a link to Amazon and more details.
