Width: 8.5"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: This four block quilt is encircled by three narrow bands with the binding creating another element of the border.

Artist's Statement: I selected the reddish rust color in this example of “Road to Oklahoma” blocks because of the red soil in some parts of the state. The soil is a lighter color generally then what I have chosen, but the dirt is claylike and much darker when wet. Other parts of the state have lighter soil and wooded areas. Oklahoma is a state of contrasts.

Dedication: For the organizations in Oklahoma that research Alzheimer’s disease, such as the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation and University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $55 for Alzheimer's research.
