My son Eric, has been an Ohio State Buckeye Fan
since he was born. OK I put him in this outfit...
which now hangs in the Buckeye Corner of our basement bar!
Because Eric lives in South Carolina...
BUCKEYE cheer gear is hard to find.
I take care of that all the time...like buying him this shirt!
Eric also loved Coach Jim Tressel
I have such great memories of us watching those games
together, when we could....and during those
10 TRESSEL YEARS of Ohio State Football
I collected tshirts for each year of glory!
I also found the "Thank You" tee made after Tressel resigned
(because he took the fall for a sad mistake)
We fondly call this exit "Tatoo-gate"
I used charcoal gray grunge to set the shirts!
The back includes 3 shirts I actually wore!
Buckeye Mama had to be part of it...right?
I used a FMQ meander, to hold it all together!
Yes this entire Murphy/Gordon family bleeds scarlet and gray!
It is an amazing quilt...and my husband (an OSU Alumni)
was very sad...it was not his!
Eric celebrated his 40th birthday this year...
and every stitch in this quilt is from Mom, with lots of love
I luv the label stitched into the border...
I took a couple shots of the quilt by the ocean
before I gave it to him.
We missed getting a photo of us together with the quilt.
but, Eric just sent me this one.
He may be 40 but he is still a kid at heart...
...the kid that has my heart!
Eric picked the fabrics for this first OSU quilt
He also designed it and Mom made it too!
