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.


Project Specifications:

Skill level: beginner
Techniques used: frayed- edge applique, free motion quilting (optional)
Completed size of quilt: approximately 18x 21 inches (45x53cm)


Materials:

2 fat quarters (18x21 inches or 45x53 cm) cotton fabric for the front and back
1 fat quarter (18x21 inches or 45x53 cm) cotton flannel fabric for the middle layer (This fabric will show at the clipped edges of the quilt)
10 strips 10x 1- 1.5 inches (25x 25-27cm) complementary fabric for the largest balloon
7 strips 7 x ¾ -1.75 inches (18x 1.9-4.4cm) complementary fabric for the middle balloon
5 strips 4 x ¾ inches (10.2x 1.9cm) complementary fabric for the smallest balloon
2x2 inch (5x5cm) piece black fabric for the silhouette in the largest basket.
Darning foot or free motion foot accessory for your sewing machine (Optional)


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. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me at Etsy.


************************************FAQS******************************************************


HOW DOES A PDF PATTERN WORK?

A PDF pattern (also called e-book or tutorial) is simply a pattern that you can view and print from your home computer. No special printer required - prints on regular copy paper. Please note that full size pattern pieces are made by taping regular copy paper together at specified points. PDF patterns are great because you can save them to your computer and reuse them anytime. No more lost or worn out pattern pieces.

PDF's can be opened and viewed from Adobe Reader which you may already have on your computer. If not, go to adobe.com for a free download.

-CAN I SELL ITEMS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?

Yes! You are welcome to sell finished items handmade by you locally and online (such as Etsy). Please mention where the pattern came from ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/marylandquilter?ref=si_shop) in your listing. The pattern itself is copyrighted and can only be used by the purchaser and copied for their use. In other words, do not sell or share the pattern.

-WHAT IS FREE-MOTION QUILTING?

Free motion quilting is so much fun and easy with a little practice. You replace the straight stitch foot on any standard sewing machine with a darning or quilting foot.( It has a round circle opening or is sometimes an open half-circle) Then lower the feed dogs (The tread under the foot). Lowering the feed dogs allows you to move the fabric in all directions as you sew. By having the freedom to move the fabric you can make tight turns as you sew-- even sew your name in cursive! In many of my patterns free-motion quilting and attaching the appliques happens at the same time, saving time and giving a beautiful pattern on the back of the quilt.

Have any questions? Contact me I'll be happy to answer them.
