It is simply a "strippy" quilt with soccer fabrics alternating with non-soccer fabrics. But it has no flowers and no pinks, so maybe some father with a boy in the neo-natal unit will like it for his child.
I also worked on the Liberated Round Robin's "curves" borders.
I used double wide, packaged seam binding in black and red rickrack. I am still in the process of sewing these down and doing the quilting.
We also were shown and then made a cloth wrapper for a small gift. Our teacher gave us each two 8.5" square flowered fabrics and instructions which we could complete in about 20 minutes. Example on the right.
Later I tried my own fabrics and cut the squares 9.5" to see how much larger the package would end up. The different is this: the original could hold six Hershey's nuggets, and the larger version could hold eight. [We had the nuggets available on our snack table.]
