Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

OSU T-Shirt Quilt

Wrapped up in Christmas finery was this gift to my DH.



He'd casually mentioned early last summer that he'd like to have a quilt. Can you believe I've never made one for him?!?? I went to the thrift shop and bought all the Ohio State t-shirts they had (11) and found an old one here of ours, and VOILA! a quilt for hubby was born!

I could not get it quilted before Christmas, however, so also in the box was a note: " This is scheduled to be quilted in early January."  And it is; I'll be taking it this week to a friend who will quilt it for me.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

How sweet..it's the old addage, the quilter's husband has no coverlet. Cobbler and shoes may have better ring to it, but still the same general idea! Loved this one with the big squares.
