Playing along with Amy's Blogger's Quilt festival...
I had been contemplating what quilt I was really crazy about this past year, and had a hard time choosing one. I nearly forgot about CLOUD, which has now been re-named, ''Lucky's Cloud''
At the time I was commissioned to make this quilt, the expecting mother only had CLOUD for a word inspiration... I thought that was pretty cool. Cloud. Simple but yet so complex.. depending on the day, what color the could could look like... grey, purple, blue, yellow with sun light...
I figured it had to have Lot's of puffy quilting, and movement. With of course a few stars just for good measure to dance and play in the clouds...
Why is it ''Lucky's Cloud''? The wee babe has arrived, and HE, already has a nick name... Lucky.
Lucky is right. I hope he has sweet dreams under his very own cloud. ;-)
This quilt just fell into place for me. No second thoughts or doubts, including the quilting. As much as I dislike white quilts, (I was terrified to get the white dirty with sewing machine grease or something)
I can see no other option for it. smiles. It's one of those quilts that make me smile, and I was happy to hand it over to it's new owner...
Thanks for stopping by.

I love this quilt. I loved it when you were making it and blogged about it, and I still find it soothing to the eye, yet exciting to the mind. I love the randomness of the piecing and quilting, and the gentleness of the colors. It flows or maybe floats...like a cloud.ReplyDelete
