Default What would you do?

My nephew is getting married next year. I told him I would make them a quilt as a wedding gift and asked what color they would like. His response was "Well, scarlet and gray of course. haha" So, would you make a scarlet and gray traditional quilt or more of an OSU design?

Well, I could see a quilt in scarlet and multiple shades of grey. It sounds very modern.

I made this one in scarlet and grey for my niece, who graduated from Ohio State. Went with an Ohio Star quilt pattern called "Twin Sisters". Still Ohio-inspired, still scarlet and grey. She likes the fact that it doesn't scream "college", as an OSU design would have done. I've had 3 more requests for the same pattern, same colors!

Love the star quilts in two colors. I have learned from making wedding quilts for the males in the family not to care about the quilt after it's given and make simple designs for them. Only one has stayed married, the others have divorced and didn't get the quilt. LOL

I love the Ohio Star ... However, I doubt he would ever out grow the Buckeye - OSU.
My son so 50+ and is still an avid ( or is that rabid) U of M fan.
