If you haven’t met the quilt block called Balance, then let me introduce you.
I found this block in Nancy Martin’s Perpetual Calendar 365 Quilt Blocks A Year.
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:
Again, Balance is set side-by-side. The only difference is in the color placement. Stars have appeared!
An alternate color theme:
By deleting just a few lines, I’ve created another alternate block to add to the mix:
And one more arrangement:
Lots more could be done with this block, so go ahead and play with it! See what you come up with!
By the way, this block looks amazingly like Bachelor’s Puzzle.
