The Oklahoma Twister quilt block is another in my quest to make quilt blocks corresponding to the states of America. I’m not ignoring other countries, it’s just that there are some really beautiful quilt blocks named after the states. I haven’t yet found any named after the counties of the UK!
It has been pointed out to me that the two blue triangles on the bottom of this block have been sewn together incorrectly, so please see the layout photo rather than this one for the block. My apologies. I will remake the block as soon as I can!
I have made this quilt block 12″ square finished size using just white and blue fabrics.
twenty 2.1/2″ white squares
eight 2.7/8″ squares of both white and blue
Making the oklahoma twister quilt block
Make half square triangles with the 2.7/8″ squares. Place a white and a blue square with right sides together and mark a line along the diagonal. Sew a 1/4″ seam either side of the marked line and cut along the line to produce two half square triangle units.
Lay the patchwork squares out in six rows of six squares, taking care to check which way the triangles point. Sew the squares together in pairs and then sew the pairs together across the rows. Finally sew the rows together to complete the Oklahoma Twister quilt block.
I think that this is alovely clean and fresh looking quilt block pattern – it will look great in a quilt.
