The Soccer Party Quilt is a modern design based on the iconic soccer ball with just the right amount of color mixed in to make it personal and fun.

The Basics


This pattern includes instructions for four sizes: Baby, Throw, Twin and Queen and is for the



confident beginner quilter who has experience with half rectangle triangles (HRTs) and snowball corners.


Not so sure about the HRTs? Even if you've never tried making half rectangle triangles before, I've included step-by-step video instruction to walk through the entire process, start to finish.


Did I mention how quickly this quilt comes together? With large 18.5" x 12.5" unfinished blocks, once your HRTs are ready to go, the rest of the pattern is a chain-piecer's dream.

Fabric Requirements




As noted in the fabric requirements above, Colors 3-14 will be cut into 2.5" squares. You may choose to use any of the following for these colors to achieve two different yet similar looks.





To follow the pattern and cover quilt, with an "organized scrappy" look, choose either:

  1. Yardage (12 - 1/4 yard cuts)

  2. A Fat Eighth or Fat Quarter Bundle of 12 colors








For a truly scrappy option, you will need the following number of 2.5" squares per size:

  • Baby - 24

  • Throw - 60

  • Twin - 128

  • Queen - 160




For the scrappy option, some choices would be:

  1. One jelly roll of your favorite fabrics. One jelly roll will work for all sizes. You will have more leftover 2.5" strips the smaller the size of the quilt you make.

  2. Mini charm packs of 2.5" squares. Charm packs typically consist of 42 2.5" squares so you would need the following number of mini charm packs per size: Baby - 1, Throw - 2, Twin - 4 , Queen - 4.

  3. Your scraps! This is a perfect way to use up some of those scraps laying around in your sewing room.
