Rise Quilt- Block 1 Pattern

Happy Monday morning to you! I am excited to be releasing the first block pattern for the "Rise" quilt today. It's the simplest one- the yellow balloon in the center on the demo quilt.


Before we get to that, I want to thank all of you who subscribed and were so excited to sew along. The giveaway winner is Sheri Salatin! Sheri, please send me your address and I will get your prize to you. I think you will really like it :)


Here is the first block pattern:

Since I'm sewing along too, here's my Block 1 for the scrappy version I'm making. I haven't ever kept a baby girl quilt, but I think I may have to keep this one in the end . You know- "in case I ever have a girl". 

 
I can't wait to see your balloon blocks! If you're just joining us, you can find details on the sew along here.

    1. I'm sorry you're having trouble :/ I'm not sure what to tell you! I'll have a paper pattern available of the whole thing at the end if that helps.
