Opposites Attract Susan Turney
It seems as soon as the challenge is announced something pops into my head and I have to go with it. In this case Xs and Os as in Tic, Tac, Toe. I used Frieda Anderson's hand-dyed silk that I fused, cut into strips, and then wove for the background. (Definitely not the best use of this fabric because you don't see the beautiful gradations). It was a dream to quilt and feels so good under your hands. I had a spool of variegated thread that just happened to have all the same colors so that was fun. I usually carry over a piece of fabric from the last challenge but couldn't do that here so carried over the bird.
