Another big quilt — this time for a soccer-mad kid 😉
After stitching in the ditch around the blocks to stabilise the quilt, I outline stitched the soccer balls in those blocks, using an Invisifil thread. Next, I ‘matrix’ stitched the blocks with fabric that had soccer nets behind the shoes, shirts, etc. I left the soccer balls unstitched so they ‘popped. Finally, I switched to a green thread to stitch large circles (emulating soccer balls?) in the blue, yellow, and green blocks and in the dark blue border. I left the green sashings unstitched.
