WIP Teaser

7 10 2015

Yes, this is a Work In Progress teaser! Here are two “Road to Oklahoma” blocks: two colorways, two settings, two pieced borders, two sizes … for two different quilts. I’ll be sending the quilts to McCall’s Quilting magazine soon; publication will be in the Summer of 2016.

The fabric for both quilts is from Wilmington Prints. Since the quilt uses 2 1/2″ wide strips, I obtained pre-cut strips. The Red, White, and Blue are Wilmington’s “Essential Gems” collection in Ruby Days, White Out, and Sapphire Sky. The Teal and Peach are “Wilmington Jewels” batiks from the “Miami Vice” strip pack collection.

The blocks went together quickly, assembly line fashion. I cracked the code on the optimum way to press the seams.

Sorry I can’t show you pictures of the quilts; you’ll have to be patient until next summer! Until then, collect some 2 1/2″ strips so you’ll be ready to make your “Road to Oklahoma” quilt.
