Oklahoma quilt is a well-known type of quilt that can be pieced together in numerous ways, but if you’re looking for a more simple and direct approach, then you might love this tutorial by SewVeryEasy on YouTube. This is a quilt project idea that beginners can try if they want to challenge their skills, but at the same time, it’s not too hard that it’s complicated for newbies to understand.
You won’t even need a pattern guide for this one because the steps are already made easy to follow, so you can just quilt while watching the video. This is also the perfect quilt idea for those who don’t like loud colors or busy patterns that much because this quilt is minimalist and easy on the eyes. But, what’s best about this project is that you can use your favorite charm pack to do this.
Cut the background fabric as instructed in the video, then pull 8 charm squares, and draw a line at the wrong side of each piece diagonally from corner to corner. Lay a charm square over a background square with their right sides facing, then stitch on either side of the line with a 1/8 inch seam allowance, and cut them apart down the center.
Press the fabric open and trim it down into a 4½ inches square. Next, get 16 charm squares and 16 background squares, then turn them into four patch blocks, and press the seams as you go. Lay the half-square triangles on opposite corners, then put a background square on one empty corner, and a charm square on the other.
Stitch them together and do the same process with the remaining block units. Lay and assemble the blocks however you want, then once content with the arrangement, stitch them together, and press the seams as you go. Arrange the 16-inch blocks together, then add your sashing, border, binding, and finish your quilt!
