    Wow, it’s beautiful! Babar was my favorite book when I was a child. I just love this quilt! You did such an amazing job!

    I absolutly love this! I made my son one using the faux chanille method and my daughter sleeps with it every night. I’ve been trying to think up a design for her and this may be it. I love that you snuck the baby’s name on the quilt. This is adorable!

    Your quilt turned out so adorable. The quilting looks fantastic. Did you use just one color of thread for the quilting?

    1. Shauna

      I did just use white thread to quilt the whole thing. I thought about switching colors, especially for the grass but laziness won over since not switching meant I could sew any section I wanted to, and I would quilt the balloons while quilting the grass, stuff like that.

    You stitching is beautiful! What machine do you use?

  9. Molly P

    This is beautiful! I’m making one for my future niece/nephew for my sister’s baby shower and I was wondering what you used for the “ropes” that attach the balloon baskets to the balloon itself? It looks like it might just be embroidery stitching in the one picture but I wanted to check if there might be another way you did it?

    1. Shauna

      I just used a cross stitch from my machine, any fancy stitch or hand stitch would work.

    Do you happen to know the name of the fabric that you used for the floral stripe on the large blue polka dot balloon towards the front? I have been trying to (unsuccessfully) locate the print…… I have looked at, literally, thousands – in person and on line.
    I was able to figure out and locate the others (between 4 sources)…. yay!!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    (And what great stuff you do!)

    Love this quilt.
    Baber was a favorite of all my children and my daughter just had a son.
    Already made a Dino quilt but….
    My daughter would love this. And we have the books in our basement.
    Have to try it.

  12. Katie

    Your stuff is all so amazing!!! I’m going to try to make this quilt for my daughter. It’s only my second quilt ever, so no saying how it will go. Go big or go home, right? Also, might try the modern baby doll dress for my older daughter’s first day of school. Your instructions are great, but I do have one quick question. How do you attach the sand, mountains and water to the grass and sky? I was trying to figure out if I need one continuous piece for the mountain or if I could break it up since it falls behind the balloons in two places. Thanks so much!

    Thank You. I did try that but I must have done it incorrectly the first time

  16. Lindsay Roberson

    I have entered my details twice but have not received the email for the pattern. Is there something else I should be doing? Thank you

      If you click on “account” on the menu bar it will take you to your account page, click “downloads” and you can download the pattern from there. The pattern sent to you may be ending up in a spam folder.
