This bright and fun Hot Air Balloon quilt makes the perfect baby blanket for a boy or girl.

It can also be a fun wall hanging for those who love watching hot air balloon festivals with no need to wait.

Sizes: Wall 24"x28", Crib 36"x42", and Lap 48"x56". Border the lap and put it on a twin or full bed.


Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses tables to show the number of strips to cut and the number of pieces to cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on youtube. Just search Counted Quilts Dog instruction.


Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric. This is a great quilt for going through your scraps.
