    It's me again and I still am having trouble finding an age appropriate block for use in a toddler lap quilt re: football. I do appreciate the 2 responses that I recieved but still need some help. I am willing to pay for the pattern. No apliques please.

    You can do a simple Nine-patch and Snowball block quilt and it works up pretty quickly.

    Choose a football print for your Snowball block and then co-ordinating colors for the alternating Nine-patch blocks.

    I did this snuggler quilts for my uncle who loves birds.

    QuiltBea ... lovely Quilt!



    What about instead of a square that becomes a snowball ... use a rectangle with the same technique and you'd have a football shape??


    BCaplette ... did you try Google?? Often times we can find what we want there ... or as already suggested, use the search function here on the Board?

    Or perhaps use some graph paper and develop your own pattern? that can work pretty good!

    Maybe this will help

    The only pattern I found for a block was this paper pieced one:

    http://free-quilt-patterns.net/paper.../Football.html

    No pattern given on this one, but perhaps can be used as an idea to draft your own block.

    On Google Images, I searched on football quilt. There may be some inspiration here:

    JuneC has a football print that would be perfect for a toddler. I almost got it for my 6 year old but thought it a little young.

    How about quilting a football into any solid fabric on the quilt as well? I did a USC football quilt for a friend of my husbands. I not only quilted footballs ALL OVER IT (boy was I SICK of footballs!), but I quilted football words in the solid border (i.e. touchdown, punt, quarterback etc) Here is a picture of a quilted football. If you want you can PM me and I will draw one out for you.
