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.”
