Have you ever wanted to sleep on a cloud or wonder what it would feel like? Carolina of Always Expect Moore thinks Cuddle is so soft—it reminds her of clouds. She created a tutorial for a quilt she’s fondly named “Clouds are for Cuddles” and we’re sharing it here.

Clouds are For Cuddles Quilt (3)

Carolina used Cuddle Precuts and some Cuddle yardage too. She also added batting from Fairfield to give the quilt some extra dimension and loft.

Carolina completed a few different quilting techniques. She used free motion quilting, stitch-in-the-ditch, and straight-line quilting—all done on her domestic sewing machine. We think she has some gorgeous results.

Carolina created this quilt with Cuddle yardage and Cuddle precuts; in shades of silver, grey, carbon, and a bit of white:
