I love hot air balloons. Every summer, it seems all the big mountain resort towns have their own version of a hot air balloon festival. The balloons look so pretty against the bright blue Colorado sky with the mountains in the background. When I saw the Rise quilt along at Woodberry Way I knew I was going to make at least one block. I chose to make Block 6 for my mini and I used Backyard Roses by Ellis& Higgs. I hung this mini above my sewing table and it always makes me smile.
