I was happily sewing this quilt together in my sewing room when my 14-year-old son came walking in and gasped. “Mom! What are you doing making a Purdue quilt? Does Dad know what you’re doing?” It was as if I committed a crime right in front of my son! You see, our family members are dyed-in-the-wool Buckeye fans through and through. My son learned this at an early age when I bought him a ball from a sale rack at the sports store, which happened to be a Purdue ball. So many people commented on that ball in our home until I couldn’t take it anymore and I tossed it into the donation pile. I must say, however, that this Purdue quilt is so much fun to make and I enjoyed every moment of it. The state of Indiana’s quilt blocks flank the sides of the iconic Purdue logo. This one isn’t going into the donation pile! I hope you can enjoy making this for the Boilermaker in your life!
