Who doesn’t love a hot air balloon?  I think they have an implied charm about them.

Drift Away - Overall

I love using swirly designs in the quilting when I’m working on a background for something that might happen on a windy day.  Wouldn’t a hot air balloon be just that?

I feel like it adds some whimsy to the piece.

This quilt is a fun mix of bright blue sky and a grey hot air balloon.

This quilt will look really cool when washed.  The texture in the sky will crinkle up to give a really soft feel & the edges of the hot air balloon will start to fray to give it a worn look.

Drift Away - Back

The back of this is beautiful all on it’s own.  The grey thread used to quilt the balloon makes it look like a pencil drawing against the texture of the white thread on the white fabric.
