BUCKEYE NATION GETS A NEWBIE

My grandson, Nique, recently graduated from High School 
earning an "academic" full ride" to 
The Ohio State University.  

My hubby, Phil,  is an alumni and 
we both LOVE The Ohio State Buckeyes 
Sew, of course...I had to make Nique a Buckeye Quilt!

First quilt I quilted on my Bernina B740
Luv the 10" throat space...sew much easier to quilt!


I have been stitching text on the front of my quilts recently,
instead of a label on the back....can't take this off to easily! 



The backing...an OSU sheet found at a thrift store!


All done!


 Nique wrapping himself in some BUCKEYE LOVE!


Which one of these guys is happier?
Grandpa Phil or Nique?


And I am happy to have moved yet another quilt 
from my heart to his!



Only about 80 days til the BUCKEYES kick off 
the football season...but who is counting?

GO BUCKS!

  4. What a great quilt and a great gift you've made for him. I love the design, and the sheet on the back. I bet it gets lot of use.
