Balance

texasboxerlover:

This is one of my favorite blog to follow. Laura works with one block at a time, generally thru EQ7 and plays with settings with that block and with different colors. One week she will play with straight settings and the next week “on point” settings. I think you will enjoy her blog as much as I do.

If you haven’t met the quilt block called Balance, then let me introduce you.

Balance Quilt Block

I found this block in Nancy Martin’s Perpetual Calendar 365 Quilt Blocks A Year.

I drew it with a 5 x 5 grid in Electric Quilt 7.  If you own BlockBase, it is #1817c.

It isn’t often that one sees a green and white quilt (I don’t think I’ve ever seen one…I may have to google that later), but it is March, and I’m longing for spring, so I’ve set this block with green and white. 

Here is how it looks in a straight set:

In the following design, I’ve deleted a few lines from the block to create an alternate crossing block to set Balance with.  I’ve also added another green to the mix.

I squared up the quilt design (it isn’t longer than it is wide now) and rearranged the blocks:
