Novelty November - Rugby Ball Quilt made by Margaret

So you have made a quilt for everyone in the family, what quilt can you make for sports mad men and women in your life? Margaret has great ideas and vision, and between us we can usually come up with something that we are both pleased with.  This time it was a rugby quilt for her grandson - who loves rugby.

The internet has loads of different digital quilting patterns which can be purchased and a quick look and I found this quilt pattern for a longarm quilting machine featuring rugby balls / footballs (depending on which continent you are in!)  With many of my customers living in Wales, I felt it would get plenty of use in the future.

Margaret wanted to include some words and symbols on the quilt and I was able to help her out by using my Accuquilt Studio cutter and the use of a lightbox to create the imagery above.  The rugby balls  make great background and the reverse of the quilt had the team colours.  A great sporty quilting pattern.
