Oklahoma celebrated it's centennial in 2007. I was trying to jump on the bandwagon of the events surrounding the celebration. A quilt shop owner and writer featured a quilt contest. You had to make a quilt square depicting what Oklahoma meant to you. Part of the contest was to submit a story about your quilt. I worked on my quilt square, but I did not get it finished. I will show it too sometime. I have to finish it first. I love it, it is awesome. (I never say "awesome") Anyway, I wrote a poem about what Oklahoma means to me and I will share a verse with you each Friday then you tell me what Oklahoma means to you. Hopefully I have the quilt square done by the end of my poem. Enjoy . . .
