Hot Air Balloon Quilts

A pair of patchwork and appliqu├ęd quilts, made for a much-loved pair of twins two years ago. The suggested theme was hot air balloons, to match the nursery. I initially designed them as double-sided (day and night), but even after that, I ended up with a far bigger bite than I’d expected to chew through… My first quilt, and not sure I’d make another, although admittedly many of the problems stemmed from the sheer scale and making it up as I went along!

I actually photo-documented the process in some detail for once, thanks to having an assistant, so you can see how I got through it.
