    I'm not sure what "original" colors you mean; was there a particular quilt with that name?

    As for the *kinds* of colors that might have been used, the road to Oklahoma would have been taken by settlers in the mid-to-later 1880s, so any of the "civil war" reproductions would be appropriate for a block made now.

    I, too, didn't realize there were original colors... but small prints and scrappy will make a fantastic quilt... I'm betting the pioneers who settled Oklahoma would have made their quilts with whatever they could find available. I love that pattern!

    Thanks, hadn't thought about what color they use back then for quilts just what they had.
