Baby Quilt with hot air balloons

Friends of ours asked me to make a quilt for their first grandchild using hot air balloons.  The room is painted accordingly and although I was rather apprehensive about the theme, the quilt turned out beautiful.

I took my husband with when I went fabric shopping which turned out to be a blessing as he picked the polkadot fabric!  I then proceeded embroidering the second batch of balloons incorporating these colours.  The first batch was embroidered in primary colours as is painted in the nursery.  Below are close-ups of the balloons side by side in the different colours.
