    Thanks. It is truly one of a kind. I will never attempt another one like it. I saved the patterns but they will probably be filed away somewhere. It took me a year off and on. And I am still not satisfied. I am taking it to a quilt show next week. Will post how it does.

    I love all the colors in the balloons, and the background cloud fabric is awesome! You could just lie down on this and dream away!

    That is absolutely gorgeous. I did a crossstitch of hot air balloons a few years ago... I wonder if I could find that? Hmmmm...

    The more I look at your cross stitch, Mamagus, the more I get another brain storm. I have always thought that you can make a quilt from any cross stitch pattern by using different colors for the blocks instead of thread. Anyway, the cross stitch will look great in a picture frame above my bed.

    It just fit on the scanner bed so it is not very big... you could make it into a throw pillow for the bed... or frame it!

    I love it. When I taught 5th grade several years ago our team theme was hot air balloons. I still have a soft spot for them. You did an amazing job!
