Football anyone Quilt #74

So here we are again after some more Quilting..

today we are looking at Leanne of Nanango's Quilt that she made for her son

this is the second one that I have done for Leanne this week..

In this quilt Leanne has used a Rugby panel and then added some disappearing 9 patch blocks to the side...
the end result is the awesome quilt for her 
son to keep warm under while watching Tv...

we used a rainbow variegated thread and an all over quilting design of footballs :) :) 

as you can see from the pictures below
it has turned out just wonderful and as this was a new pattern for me 
I think it has turned out just terrific :) :) 

but for now I am off to quilt another quilt
