The Game Is Saved!

Thank you so much for your comments, the foot/leg was an excellent idea and I've whipped one up this weekend. I also liked the idea to use thread and lots of stitching to create the motion "bouncing" bands. I had experimented with black flanelette, but it was to crass and I don't have gray. So I'll use a zigzag stitch back and forth and will outline it with a straight stitch, probably about 3 strips, staggered up and down going in the space between the ball and the foot do indicate direction. I'm much much happier with the quilt now! Now there's a reason for the ball to be on that quilt ;)

They were right this looks great. It looks like the ball is being kicked high in the sky. I really like how it turned out. Great job!

Oh that looks so much more balanced and the movement implied by the foot really is great!! Now you have a reason for thinking that the ball is coming up out of the quilt and right towards you LOL

Well Done!!

Love it! The foot sure finishes the quilt and gives the ball a reason to be! Perfect!
