Oklahoma Quilt Block Tutorial

Hello! It's been a few days! I've been busy behind the scenes the past few days. More on that, soon.

But first, I'm back with another National Days block tutorial today, another state. This is the state of Oklahoma for National Oklahoma Day, which was/is June 7th. That's actually my brother's birthday, and in a funny twist, he went to college in OK. ha! (Boomer, Sooner!) We also have some super fun memories of visiting our relatives in OK when we were kids.💖




This block is fairly simple. Only TWO tiny clip & flip corners and a tiny square for the capitol!





Fabric A (background):
(1) 2 3/4 x 3 1/2
(1) 2 3/4 x 4 1/2"
(1) 3 x 8 1/2"
(1) 3 1/4 x 4 1/2"


Fabric B (Oklahoma):
(2) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 x 1 1/2" (>)
(1) 1 x 3 1/2" (>>>)
(1) 1 1/2 x 3 1/4"
(1) 1 3/4 x 2"
(1) 2" sq.
(1) 3 x 3 3/4"


Fabric C (capitol):
(1) 1" sq. (~)




Right Upper Clip & Flip

1. Place square at upper end or right upper  corner of rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
2. Stitch from left upper to right lower corner.
3. Clip, flip & press.





-Using above method, 1" sq. of Fabric B and 3 1/4 x 4 1/2" rect. of Fabric A-long edge at the top, make one unit.

-Using same method, 1" sq. of Fabric B and 2 3/4 x 4 1/2" rect. of Fabric A-long edge at the top, make one unit.

---------------------

Using scant quarter inch seams, assemble as shown below, and you will have an 8 1/2" block of the state of Oklahoma. (8" finished in quilt)





A few years ago, we went to visit my parents in MO, and road tripped over to the tiny town of Pawhuska, OK to visit Ree Drummond's (the Pioneer Woman) Mercantile. It was so much fun. She wasn't there that day, though. :( Neither was Ladd. :( But it was still a lot of fun!









We stayed overnight about a block away in these old oil workers' quarters, over one of the storefronts, that had been restored with antiques, even old quilts on the beds. Definitely an adventure. I think there's an adventure to be had in every single state. :)













There was also little quilt shop there, but it was closed when we were there. We did find another interesting shop called the Buckin' Flamingo that was full of brightly painted metal sculptures of all kinds. So fun! Also, be careful how you say Buckin' Flamingo, don't get it backwards. Yikes. ha! I'm sure I have some pics somewhere buried in the cloud. :/

I digress! haha I'll be back, hopefully soon with another block. Oh! I just checked my list, and the next block in line is for National Sewing Machine Day. I can't wait to share the tiny sewing machine block that I drew!

Meet you back here, soon! If you make any blocks, come find me and show me in any of these places:

P.S. If you're just finding these blocks, I'm keeping them all organized on the National Days page. If you're interested in the Minecraft, Pokemon, or Harry Potter sew alongs, you can find them on the SewAlongs page, *HERE*
