    Balancing Act Pattern

    I have been searching for the Balancing Act pattern from All People Quilt in April 2009. I can see it online, but there is no pattern attached and it does not appear to be archived. Does anyone have any idea how I can get a copy of this pattern? I understand that it may be under copyright, but there does not appear to be anywhere I can send an inquiry. Every time we go into Fabric Hut in Norfolk, my DD says how much she loves this quilt. I would like to be able to make it for her, but my skills do not go so far as to figure it out from the photo. Any suggestions would be welcome. I am attaching a photo, so you will know which quilt I am writing about. Thanks!

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    I am making a quilt similar to that and I am using a creative grid triangle ruler for the triangles and the pieces that go around the triangle. The pattern I am using is Chopsticks. You could eliminate the opposite block and just use the one triangle block.

    Why not just purchase the April 2009 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting in which it first appeared? Since BH&G doesn't seem to have any (they don't appear to sell their own magazines online, but you could call 800-677-4876 or email apq@meredith.com to ask), I'm sure someone on eBay does.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Thank you all for your helpful replies. I checked on ebay and there is one for sale, so that's the route I think I'll be taking. Don't know why I didn't think of it myself, but sometimes there's just someone with a better idea! Thanks so much . . . my DD will be happy when I can find time to make it!

    Oh my gosh, when I read your post I got all excited! I've just recently moved to Norfolk and love Fabric Hut! And the best part it's not that far from where I live, or maybe that's not so good!
