    I think it'd be cute to just a marbled background and then applique football shapes in the nfl fabrics all over it. Just a thought...

    What about making Variable Stars with the team fabric in the center and their colors as the star points?

    Try the Friendship Star---it is very easy to do and you could use the colors of each team in one star and then maybe applique a football on top with team name. Machine applique is not hard at all. For a beginner I would recommend using one of your decorative stitches or an open zig zag---do not try to use a satin stitch because it will take a lot of practice to get it right. If you use steam a seam II to fuse the footballs, it will be easy to stitch them and hold better. Take some scraps and practice first.
    Once you get the hang of it, it is a lot of fun and more durable than hand applique.
