I am looking for a pattern to make an OSU quilt. I saw a great quilt, but no pattern. Any suggestions ladies? All I can find are small lap quilts or wall hangings. I need something I can make into queen/king size.

Some one recently did a college quilt (it might have even been OSU). If I remember correctly, they did some sort of center panel (may have been pre-printed) and then used some sort of traditional quilt block around it to get it to the size needed.

You could probably draft something similar - it looks like log cabin blocks in the O shape.

This post has some examples that you could probably easily draft:

I'll give you measurements for using a 12" log cabin, but you could change them. Google for directions to make a 12" log cabin.
Make 6 all red log cabins. Make 4 half red/half white log cabins. Sew together 2 sets of the half-all red-half log cabins to make the top and bottom of the O (make sure the white corners point out correctly). Sew the all red log cabins together to make 2 pairs. Cut a background piece of fabric 24 1/2" x 12 1/2" (width by twice the length of the log cabins). Snowball the corners using a 3" square. (this size could vary depending on what look you like). Sew the all red log cabin pairs to either long side of the snowballed rectangle. Add the top and bottom of the O (make sure white corners point out correctly). Add a 2" white border, a 1" black border, a 5" gray border, another 1" black border, and an 8" red border. This makes a 70" x 82" quilt. Play with border sizes and/or adjust the log cabin block size to suit your needs.

Do you think if I increased the log cabin block size to a 15" square that it will still look ok? I think it will be easier to get to the queen size that way, without making it seem like I am adding borders just to make it bigger

qbquilts 09-16-2011 03:32 PM

yeah - you may need to adjust some border sizes and/or amount of borders to get the size you want. The length would be 15 inches longer than the width and the center (just the log cabin/rectangle blocks) would be 45" x 60". The borders I mentioned totaled 17" on each side - if you kept this the same, the quilt would be 79" x 94"

Here's my favorite team quilt. I'm working on a Cubs quilt like it now. HCarpanini has been very helpful with my questions...
