I only started one new project in February. I have deadlines on many of the projects I'm working on, so could only really fit in one new project. It is a project that was on my 2013 NewFO list, the OSU quilt. I only manged to get three of the blocks done, but at least that's a start.

My Guy and I met at Oklahoma State while we were both in school there. It's the "other" college with a football team in the state of Oklahoma. Drama Teen spent her early years in TX which has it's own orange and red rivalry. We didn't think anything about that till one day she came home from school not long after we moved back to Oklahoma and asked, "What color are we?" She was in first grade at the time and we were a bit puzzled about what she was really asking. Then she clarified, "Are we orange or are we red?" Then we got it. When she was little DT wanted to be a vet, and OSU has the vet school, so her plan was to attend school there. She wanted an OSU quilt for her room, so I started collecting fabrics. She has long since picked another career path which would be best pursued at one of the smaller regional colleges but since I still have all the fabric, it was time to pull it all out and do something with it.
Orange isn't really one of my favorite colors, so I've not sewn with it much. This is going to be a really orange quilt, something way outside of my comfort zone. But that's good for me right? Since DT has switched up her career plans, this quilt is going to be a thank you gift for a family friend who is a big time OSU fan.
So just the one new project this month. I have a couple more that I'd really like to start, but with a busy schedule and deadlines on most of the in progress projects, starting a bunch of new stuff was just not in the cards this month. Hopefully, March will be more accommodating Check out all the other new quilting ventures over at Cat Patches.
