Up and Away

A paper pieced mini wall hanging. Finished size: 20: x 27″ Recently available in Make Modern Magazine, now on sale publicly.


Up and Away is a mini quilt that uses a foundation pieced Hot Air Balloon block as it’s centre feature. The Ballon Block is pieced to a basket block and borders are added. Sassy sand bags are fused on once the quilting is finished. 

This is a great project to showcase quilting with a walking foot on a domestic sewing machine. A suggested quilting diagram is included in the pattern. Big stitch hand quilted suspension ropes finish the project.
