This quilt was started two years ago. Piecing the balloon was the first challenge; what to do with the balloon was the second challenge. I found the commerical panel of the poppies and the trees and added the scene as the foundation for the balloon. But at that stage everything looked rather ordinary. So, the third challenge. I thought it would be interesting to place something in the poppies that one might not usually see. So, the dolphs swimming were added. From there, the fish in the sky seemed like an almost natural occurence. The monkey in the basket just made me smile.
