hot air balloon quilt wall hanging

By Hatun Comak Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Wall hanging quilts are perfect for using in room decorations. I started this hot air balloon quilt for my son's room. For this quilt, I preferred bright, colorful fabric for the patches at the balloon. I am a big fan of the bright colors, actually. The balloon has a pocket basket in which any toys can be replaced in. A bird and a butterfly which were apliqued fly with the balloon in the sky. Below there is a village with a house and some trees of orange, cherry and apple. I embrodied the cherries and made apples and oranges of tiny pieces. The finished form of the wall hanging quilt measures 24x32 inches.

I made the balloon with english paper piecing technique, pressed with iron and removed the papers. Then I appliqued it on fabric with invisible stitch.


I used the same technique for the bird also. These tiny trees with various fruit on are absolutely my favourite. I definitely like making them. In the images below you can see the details of house and trees in my hot air balloon quilt.


This hot air balloon quilt with bright colors will make the kid's room a lively place. The details of natural landscape is also great.
