Pattern Description:

It's a bright sunny morning. The day is perfect for a hot air balloon ride. There you are, in the balloon with your companion, waving hello. Two other balloons share the beautiful adventure with you.

This mini quilt is a whole cloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The appliques are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, folk look to the quilt.
The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.

This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions with photos. There are full size printable patterns for each of the appliques. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis
