UP AND AWAY by Emily Herrick

Summertime is the perfect time for a ride in a hot air balloon!  Emily Herrick takes us UP and AWAY with her newest collection of fun fabrics.
  If you were at International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, I hope you were lucky enough to see Emily's booth for yourself. It makes such an adorable room for those brothers and sisters that have to share!  I wanted to pick up the entire booth and place it in my house :)

 As usual, all her projects were amazing!!  She puts so much detail into the design of her booth.  The hit of the show was the adorable hot air balloon that you can see hanging in the photo above. Soooooo many people were asking how to make it. We've finally got the answer
