Finally one of my own creations. I designed the quilt pattern to teach a triple technique class including machine embroidery , paper piecing and strip piecing. I love how the balloons and the colors look just like the Albuquerque sky in early October for the International Balloon Fiesta. I choose a background fill on the blue to look like a sky pattern and used a tone on tone blue variegated thread to add a little movement. Both the feature fabric from the front and the balloon panel from the back were from a coordinating fabric line.
It has been selected to show at Chattanooga, Tennessee at the AQS show. I first hung it at Rusty Barnes 2016 in our booth and it had a huge audience so I know it will show well
