Center done

Got all the balloons together! I am fairly pleased with it so far, but I think I might applique a balloon or two on the lower sides of the central big balloon where there are big open spaces or maybe I will just make a few more smaller balloons and figure out how to piece them in there. I will use the balloon fabric for borders and then I can get quilting. Well, I do have that pesky embroidery to do also!

If I were to do this again I would make it wider and shorter and add some hills to the bottom. And if it wasn't a baby quilt needing name, date, etc. on the balloons I probably wouldn't make the three biggest balloons and just fill in more with the 1.5", 3" and 6" balloons.

Alicia,
I'm totally blanking on whether I sent you a thank you yet for the Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilt. If not, I wanted to tell you that I just love it! It's so cute and those yo-yo flowers are wonderful. I also love the hand stitching and quilting. Thank you so much. I'm about to post about it on my blog.
