Hot Air Balloon Quilt

The quilt below is for my friends Jessica & Jeremy. They already have an adorable daughter and in a few months they will be adding a little boy to their family. When I decided to make a quilt for the new baby, I referred back to a picture Fritz posted on Instagram of what she was going to use for her inspiration for decorating the baby's room. Then I started looking for fabric that had hot air balloons on it. What I didn't realize was that the picture she posted was actually of HOT AIR BALLOON FABRIC! So, once I figured that out, my search for hot air balloon fabric was over.
