Brutus Ohio State Quilt

Original Ohio State t-shirt used

My sister’s 60th Birthday was this month  and I wanted to give her a special gift.  She is an avid OSU fan.  I decided it was time to finish that quilt I started in 2003.  In 2003 there was a show on TV called “While you were out.”  Well my sister was on her way to AZ on a bus trip  to watch her beloved Buckeye’s in the National Championship Game.  I got the bright idea to redo her bedroom while she was gone.  The idea snowballed and the whole family got onboard with the project. I did the bedroom and the rest of the family did the living room.    I knew I wanted to do a Buckeye bedroom and I was trying to come up with an idea for a quilt.  I ran across a t-shirt that belonged to her granddaughter, Cassidy.  I thought it would make an awesome quilt.  I took the t-shirt to Staples and put it on the copy machine and just kept  enlarging it until I got it to the size I wanted.  The quilt top was all white and I could not think of how to quilt it, so it sat in my UFO pile for 9 years.  I ran across a quilt pattern that had the red and gray diagonal around a block O .  This was the ticket to finishing the quilt.  I loved the outcome.

I guess it is “better late than never.”
