I want to make a raffle quilt w/hot air balloons on it. Any ideas on where to find a pattern? I am thinking I may have to make my own applique pattern, which is fine but wanted to explore the guys!

Have you checked One of my favorite sites-you might be able to find a square you could adapt.

I don't know if you do paper piecing but here is a hot air balloon pattern.
Here's a quilt that was made with the paper pieced balloon. Can give you some ideas.

A wall-hanging pattern to purchase.

Hope this helps.
