    I don't have a horse in tomorrow's National Championship game but I thought I'd post this quilt that a made a few years back for a dear friend. The final design is my own and it was my first attempt at putting a quilt together with no pattern. I used paperpieced compass blocks from Block Base/EQ and needleturn appliqued the center.
    I quilted it on my little Janome 4623LE.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you!! He really liked it and was quite surprised. It's the only sports themed quilt I've ever done and I'm a diehard football fan. I keep saying someday I'll make one for me with Buckeye or Browns colors but I never do.

    Wonderful quilt! I'm amazed when I see quilts made without a pattern - you did a wonderful job!

    My DS lives in Portland, so I can assure you I'll be rooting for the Ducks tomorrow night :)

    The quilt is really beautiful. I've made a number of sports themed quilts, since I grew up in a family of sports fanatics, married into one, had two sons who developed into sports fanatics, and now two GS (although only ages 2 and 4) who are following in their footsteps. I really like your design and would like to try to copy it if it is ok with you. I have made at Ohio State quilt and I'm almost ready to start on an Ohio State wallhanging for the soon-to-be 5 year old GS.

    And yes, we're cheering for the Ducks.

    Jill,
    Thanks!! It's nice knowing you liked it so much.I saw a great tOSU variation on a Judy Martin pattern. He pattern is the "Three of a Kind" and if you go here:

    ----scroll down to the quilts from her "Scraps" book
    ----and check out the last entry, you'll find it. I thought it was very clever.

    Great quilt!

    Good luck to Oregon tomorrow!

    I would love to make an OSU Buckeyes quilt someday! It is on my list! (my list which is always growing longer and longer)
