    Playing with Jacks masculine controlled scrappy OSU

    First of three quilts ready to gift! Yay! I am making an Ohio State lap quilt for each of our 3 adult sons...didn't want the quilt to scream OSU...this is Bonnie Hunter's free pattern, Playing with Jacks. I am trying to get more adventurous with FMQ...wanted to try curved crosshatching, but couldn't find the proper size lid to use as a template! I know there are rulers but they are pricey, and I prefer to spend my retirement sewing budget on fabric!
    Colors are more accurate in the closeup pic...Will surprise my son with this tomorrow!

    That's nice. You can make a set of curved templates for yourself with either template plastic, heavy cardstock or poster board. Make a bunch of different sizes. I save all the little templates I make for myself. They come in handy.

    This is gorgeous! I have made some of my templates with freezer paper. Just press however many sheets together draw your template then cut it out. Freezer paper is cheap. If you don't like your template then just cut something else out of it. The rolls come in 150'x18". That can make a lot of templates. money saved!!

    You selected great fabrics for a scrappy look. I am sure they will enjoy the quilts you made for them.

    It is beautiful. Great job. I can relate to the retirement sewing budget, my spouse told me in March I have already spent my sewing budget for this year.

    beautiful quilt. great quilting, love those borders.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Your quilt turned out beautiful. I have already started making some of my own templates to add to the others. It's fun too.

    I love the crosshatching in the squares. Very nice job. Handsome color choice.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Oh my gosh !!! An Ohio State fan. My husband lives and breaths OSU. Of course, I help since I'm from Ohio, too. He wants a quilt for his bed, and this would just fill the bill.
