Wishing a Splendid Thursday to you all. My day began with $700 of dental work. Not the best start to the day but if this little elephant won't cheer me up what will?! I love this cute little block. It is called Balance by Wenche Wolff Hatling. This is a fun addition to the blocks. As usual, I did my block using the needle turn method but you use whatever works best for you.
This makes four blocks so now you can see how your fabric choices are going to look. I have a small design wall that I keep the blocks on so that I can see them all together as I choose fabric for each block going forward. That really helps me to see if I need more lights or darks in my blocks to keep everything balanced. I am pretty happy with the way these are shaping up. This is a fun way to make a quilt with little time investment. One six inch block a week is something that most folks can fit in and the variety of techniques are great for skill building.
