the Crazy Quilt Buffalo, celebrates
Oklahoma's heritage by employing the
structure of the patchwork quilt.
Each patch will be painted to resemble
a highly stylized image or pattern
that reflects those things associated
with Oklahoma. Despite its name the
buffalo will be painted to be durable
and retain its vibrant colors.
Growing up in a small rural town,
I was surrounded by farm life and
country folk. Quilts my Grandma and
other family members made really grabbed
my attention even as a young child.
I was fascinated by all the different
colors and textures. I could sit on
it or lay in it and try to figure
out from where all
photos for close-up
different patches came. Of all the
different patterns, I have always
had an affinity for the crazy quilt.
The crazy quilt has a way of making
remnants beautiful and useful again.
The objectives of Patches, the Crazy
Quilt Buffalo, are to (1) be an aesthetically
beautiful and vibrant piece of art;
(2) convey a sentiment of home and
family; and (3) showcase remnants
of Oklahoma past and recent past.
