What are you most proud of? The soccor ball. I wish I could take a better photo. This came out very crisp and I really like the "seams" on the ball.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Wait to trim the bottom until after your block is finished to make sure its 12 1/2".

It is real neat NewbieJean I love the soccer awesome!! I might just have to try it myself, if I can figure out how you did it lol.

Thanks Quilter Jen. Think "diagonal"..... Also, look for a soccer image on the net.

Absolutely fabulous - love the soccer ball and sun. The angle that you cut your background fabric really sets if off.

Thanks Beth! That background fabric is one of my favorites. Its so versitle. I've used it many times in lots of sewing projects.

Hi Newbie Jean, I wouldn't change the sun on your block - I think it is so great and uniquely yours.

I'm going to have to do a block like this . . . maybe a whole quilt for my grandson who is a great little soccer player. His daddy, my son, was raised in Brazil and both of them are soccer players! Love your choice of colors and just everything about your block.

Why thank you GrannyZil! What a nice compliment. It would be such fun to see your quilt. As you create the soccer balls think "diagonal". Hope to see your quilt soon!
