Rise Quilt- Block 7

Welcome back! This round is one of my favorite blocks. No sideways turning or tricky trimming this time around :)

Block 7 Pattern

I've had some questions about joining late and previous patterns. Here are a few reminders:

It's never too late to join. These patterns will be on my blog for as long as the internet is a thing :) I will be offering a paper pattern eventually for those who prefer that.

All the patterns for the blocks can be found on the "Rise Quilt Along" tab on the top right of the blog under the pictures and title.

We have two more blocks after this, then borders and prairie points. There will be a giveaway at the end, and those who completed participated in the sew along in any way will automatically be entered, even if you only sewed one block!

Here's my block for this round. I'm very grateful to Michelle (@coleandtaffy) and Jennifer (@crimsonconfection) for helping me out by testing this one. You ladies are the best!

As always, thanks for sewing along! 


  1. You are so incredible to be sharing these! They are gorgeous and I'm seriously considering jumping in even though I am LATE LATE LATE. Each block has been better than the last. Thank you for your generousity, Alison! xo Amanda (Acraftyfox_amanda on IG :))

  2. I'm so excited about this quilt and have learned so much. My first few blocks came out all wrong but I was able to tweak a few things and make them still fit. Then I realized my 1/4" foot was taking too much off, which is why everything was coming up to small. Now that I've fixed it I'm even more in love with these blocks, and it's fun to add a few variations into the mix. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I'm so glad Riley Blake shared this project on Facebook, because now I know about it and can join too! Hot air balloons are my favorite. Thank you for the wonderful pattern.


  4. Hi Alison ! Just found your website few days ago. Am loving the little Rise blocks. They will be so cute for a child' quilt. So far have completed 5 of the blocks. Am just wondering how or where we "enter" to show we are participating ? Thanks so much for your generous donation of your time in designing these cute little blocks !

    1. Hey there, thanks for joining! It would be best if you could share your blocks on Instagram with the hashtag #risequilt. That is the easiest way for me to see it. You could also share on my Woodberry Way facebook page, if you don't have Instagram.

  5. I had started this QAL back when it started, but life happens and unfortunately I had to take a break from sewing. I have been going back and trying to finish my pile, this included, but I am finding that the links no longer work. I have tried every pattern link and none of them open anymore!! I was really looking forward to finally finishing this quilt up, but now I don't know what to do. I don't know if there is another way to get the missing patterns I need, or if I will just have to give up on this one completely 😕
