On to Soccer Boy


I know it looks very "busy", but what was I to do with all those soccer balls on the fabrics?
This is the center part of the front of the quilt-to-be.  Now I am going to layer and quilt this section before adding some borders by the Quilt-As-You-Go method.

Charlie and I drove off to visit the beach of Lake Michigan at Meinert Park this AM and arrived just as the rain started.  So we re-grouped and went in to the farmers' market in Montegue for corn, tomatoes, blueberries and peaches.  The rain started there just as we were paying up.  Drove home through pelting rain, lessening as we went east.  Got home and had lunch set up on the porch just in time for the rain to blow in THERE!  OK, OK, I'm staying inside for a while listening to the opera on WBLU.

Another "save" for Papa Grande and our Tigers last night
Chatting with my sweetie about his trip to the game
Temperature so warm, it doesn't really matter if we get wet

Both of your "boy" quilts look great!

Soccer players are busy people. The quilt looks wonderful. You are creating a treasure for someone and that person will love it.

That quilt's a kick!
Rain here too but it has brought a respite to the heat so it's not all bad.

Great fun, Sara! I think using the 'noodle' kind of piecing is perfect for this style of fabric and for kids of all ages and stages. They look fabulously fun and just wonderful to me!
