Mason's Soccer Quilt

Here's the beginning of a quilt that I'm planning for my little nephew. He really loves soccer, and I found some soccer-themed flanelette.

I hope it won't be too staticky, but I'd like to make both top and back from flanelette, for a softer, kid-friendly feel. He's probably still young enough to think those flashes of lightning under the blanket at night are fun.

Right now my plan is to make a soccerball with the proper soccerball pattern (a dark pentagon surrounded by light hexagons). The dark patches will be black flanelette, the light hexagons the blue soccer ball flanelette. The green will be the background, so that it looks like a soccer ball on a soccer field. That's the plan, anyway.
