Road-To-Oklahoma Blocks May OMG Project
Here it is May already and it’s time to select something to focus on as our May One Monthly Goal (OMG). In one aspect it’s hard to believe it is May already, while on the other hand . . . well, you know. This school year is coming to a quick end, and one of our principals is retiring. This month, we are going to focus on making the 35 Road-to-Oklahoma blocks needed for a quilt top. Patty at Elm Street Quilts has a linky party at the beginning of each month. We’ll link up with her now and then again at the end of the month to share our success.
The basics of this block are fairly simple – 2 – four-patch blocks, 4 – half-square triangles (HSTs), and a few plain squares. Easy peasy!
We are making 12″ finished size blocks and we’ll lay them out in a 5×7 block design. We ordered red, white(ish), and blue coordinating fabric from the Missouri Star Quilt Shop called American Dreams.
They all happen to be 108″ wide which ensures we’ll have some leftover to make some table runners (I hope).
It’s Go Time for Road-to-Oklahoma
We’ve made one test block which turned out just fine so it will be actually used in the quilt top.
Since adding this to our weekly to-do listing, I’ve been able to get at least one made although it took two weeks. To finish this as a retirement gift, I will need to work just a wee bit quicker than that. HAHA! To summarize our May One Monthly Goal project, we will make the 34 additional blocks needed for the planned Road-to-Oklahoma quilt of valor gift.
