Balloon String Quilt

This sounded like such a good idea when I decided to cut balloons into a string quilt. These 16 inches have given me nothing but grief, but I am almost there with only 8 half rows to finish and I will finish it. The ripper has been put to good use on this quiltie. I wanted it to look like balloons going over mountains, but it looks like a lake ended up in the middle, oh well.

Next the fun part will be embellishments. My second order of beads arrived yesterday so there are plenty of colors to pick from. YES, that is rays of SUNSHINE streaming across my last!

Oh, I like your balloon quilt. I think it's very pretty - and such a neat idea.
Sunshine? What's that? I haven't seen the sun (or felt it) for such a long time!

I think that is so cute, and what a great idea.
I know what you mean about the sunshine, it has felt so good the last few days! Makes me think Spring is really here.
And a wierd thing, we have seagulls in our parking lot!! I think these birds are very screwed up!!!! rofl
