Balancing Act Color Option
For this table topper or wall hanging version of Balancing Act, Laura Boehnke, quilt tester for American Patchwork & Quilting, chose tone-on-tone fabrics in a variety of colors. The outer triangles in the pieced triangles clearly stand out from one another. “I saved any prints containing black to use in the triangle centers,” Laura says.
