Beginner machine quilter needs ideas for soccer field

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a beginning machine quilter and I have just made a reversible table runner of a pretty new soccer fabric:  one side is a panel of the playing field showing the box, the goal area, and one large ball with LOTS of green grass all over it; the other side has the soccer players around the perimeter and LOTS of green grass in the center.


My question is for advice, even if you don't follow soccer:  what simple pattern/object, etc. would be good to use on all this green grass?  The finished size of this table runner is 19" x 57".   The lifelong soccer coach and ref for whom I am making this, has had his cancer come back.  I don't think he'll be here more than a year, if that.  Just conjecture on my part, but the point is:  I want something that fills up all the green and also is not overly complicated that will take me a lot of time and/or agony, l so I can surprise him with this pretty soon!


Any suggestions will be very helpful.  Linda Rech, feel free to comment, too!!

Zig zag bits of grass with the occasionally ball thrown into the mix.  Could be the running path of the players!
