Road to Oklahoma Quilts

When I was slowly waking up this morning I realized that I messed up my Rd. to OK intended blog. Does this show a blog addiction when I mentally think in terms of what will make a good post?

For several weeks I have been looking forward to sharing some other Rd to OK quilts that where made at the same time by a number of friends...then in my excitement over finishing the quilt late last night, I forgot all about it.

Our whole married life we lived in PA until 1995 when we decided to move to Oklahoma. In times of stress I look for ways to escape and quilting has provided some excellent escape routes over the years. The Road to Oklahoma just seemed a perfect quilt to make as we prepared for our major move. I had a great network of friends who just happened to be quilters there in PA. A few of them jumped on the wagon with me and made their quilts at the same time.

I loved the pattern so much that I decided to make my first mini-quilt. This was just too much fun until I LOST one teeny, tiny block. I looked high and low...no tiny block. The next day when I took some clothes out of the dry THERE was my tiny little block stuck in the dryer's vent. Evidently, it had stuck to my clothes when I was working on the mini. I was so glad to see it! I don't like the quilted circles in the border area. I've just never got around to ripping it out. Someday...
Next post will be how to make a Fluffanutter sandwich!
