    My DN (age 14) asked if I would ever make her a 'soccer quilt'. She lives/breathes soccer and is actually a pretty good player. After much searching for material, I finally ordered some online and put this together (no pattern). It's machine pieced and hand quilted. She was VERY excited and told me I'm 'totally rad'. I'm pretty sure that's good. Bless her heart. Thanks for looking!

    That is fabulous! My daughter (25) has been playing/teaching soccer since she was 8. She would be thrilled with this quilt. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me to come up with a quilt for her.

    That is really nice! I want to do a soccer one for my 9 yr old grandson, but haven't had any ideas with the soccer fabric that is offered ----I should look online. Thanks for sharing your creativeness - well done!

    That is great!!!!
    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.
