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…
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!
