there is a book by Carol Doak, I think? It is PP stars of the fifty states. I'll get the name and edit this post. They are really cool!
peace

The book is called 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars, by Carol Doak. I think this would be a great idea. The Ohio Star is real nice. Maybe you could do a search to find it and see if it might be something for you to try. Do you do
P-Ping?

How about this one.

Oh, I thought you meant a quilt for the university. Ignore if I'm wrong.

Okay, I'm confused. Just what are you asking for? Ideas?
Ideas to interpret your way or the symbol for the OS University?

What are the school colors. Start there
What is the school mascot?
school Motto?
Song?

Ask some of these ?'s and you may come up with something cool!
peace :D

I love the Block O quilt. It one of the better one's that I've seen. Also other things to consider putting in it are a Cardinal, Horseshoe, Woody Hayes, and a Helmet with
buckeye leafs on it. Yes, I live in Ohio about an hour drive from the stadium. Also the Ohio State archway on campus. You should be able to get some pictures of it by looking at the OSU website. Another place on campus the Mirror Lake. Google any of these. I'm not sure what kind of quilt that you want to make. But this is a hodgepodge of OSU.

Maybe you don't really want a school related quilt but one that reflects the person you are giving it to!
