Road to Oklahoma
Quilt Pattern with Actual Size Templates
From Best Loved Quilt Patterns Series
Oxmoor House Inc.
From the introduction:
In the spring of 1889, the U.S. government opened up 2 million acres of Indian Territory land in the west for white settlement. Settlers from the east poured into what was then known as the Oklahoma Territory. Perhaps it was one of those pioneer women, stitching along the trail to that new land, who named this simple to piece, yet fascinating quilt pattern.
About the series:
This is one of probably a hundred quilt patterns that I will be listing. These patterns were part of a monthly subscription series. Each month, the recipient would receive a pack of 3 different patterns. It took a couple of years to obtain the complete set.
This one is titled “Road to Oklahoma”. It was designated in the ‘Squares and Rectangles’ category. You will receive the brochure which tells the finished sizes, fabric requirements, the amount of pieces to cut, and instructions for piecing the quilt together. You will also receive actual templates that are the exact size needed to cut all the pieces of material. The templates are made of a hard, yet flexible plastic.
This pattern has never been used. If you receive templates that appear to have been cut out, that’s because when first mailed out, templates for 2 or more quilts may have been imprinted on one 8 by 12 inch template sheet. To provide you with just the templates that you’d need for the quilt, I had to separate them from unrelated templates.

All items in my listings come from estate sales, garage sales, or various auctions. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
