Width: 10.5" Length: 8.5"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics and batting, hand-dyed fabrics along with 100% cotton black fabric. Triple border then binding, machine quilted.

Artist Statement: One of the challenges on the Quilt-A-Month blog was Amish quilts. Since I love working with black to showcase bright colors, I found this the perfect opportunity to use Amish black along with my hand-dyed bright fabrics. Using the very common "Diamond in the Square" or as some know it the "Square in a Square" block, I used 6 hand-dyed fabrics twice for a total of 12 blocks. Each color is used beginning as the bright center of the block and then again as its opposite beginning with the black center...thus the name "Opposites Attract".
