Cloud Quilt

I’ve been doodling clouds for a while now, dreaming of quilt designs.  Finally, after reading Cloud Atlas, I grabbed all of my blues, whites, and greys, and started sewing!

I was very inspired by these images…

Cloud Song quilt from Little Bits Quilting Bee

I opted for going with my gut and pieced the blanket in an improvisational manner.  Once I had my twelve clouds, I added a border (with a little flashy detail).

I backed the quilt with this fabric, which is such a sweet match.

And then I started quilting!  Inside the clouds I added little white-threaded quilting clouds.

In the blue I just went with a meandering breeze.

I’m entering this quilt in the QuiltCon Improvisation category.  Wish me luck!
