It's ready and off in the mail. My secret partner should receive it today- oh, how I hope she like it!! After trying two other things, this one stuck and I so hope that it's her style!! She has some grandkiddos that I thought would love this too. It's called the Balloon Tree. The balloons were for sale until the peddler realized there was a tree with balloons growing on them. Then he made them all free to share the love and joy! What an awesome guy! How I wish we could all be so kind and generous :) The 1" flower, standing proud and strong next to his balloon tree, is one of my favorite parts.
The balloon cart and escaping balloon- it's yellow to represent the sun that's shining in the sky. Who knows what adventure it will be going on :)
The awesome tree- complete with squirrel and acorns even!
The entire mini quilt- measuring 17x20".
Some fun views...
The quilting- 12 hours worth... enough said. I really stretched myself and tried new things. I love how it turned out!
So I'm crossing my fingers that it is well loved. It was made with a lot of love and hard work! And now, whenever I see a tree or a balloon, I will think of the whimsical Balloon Tree and smile :)
