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
