Every two years OKMQA produces a project we call Same But Different. For this project each of the members who choose to participate piece identical quilt tops (same) and then each quilter quilts their top as they see fit (different).
Once these quilts are finished they are available to be shown as a single group at quilt shows around the state. The project serves many purposes. Making these quilts available for public viewing gives potential customers a chance to see which quilters have styles that suit their tastes. These quilts also give other quilters, as well as us, an opportunity to see how someone else approaches the same problem and hopefully pick up some new ideas.
I've been a member of this group for several years, but never had a chance to participate until this year. Today I quilted my quilt. I'm quite pleased with the way it has turned out.
I'm anxious to see how the other quilts will be done.
