I was confused by this topic. The only thing that came to my mind about opposites attracting was magnets. And that was not something I wanted to portray in a quilt. Started thinking just about opposites and the first thing that came to mind was black and white.
Thought about male/ female, love/hate, etc. but I was not sure they would be “attracting”.
Thought about “you can’t have one without the other”, like in an old song by Frank Sinatra (guess that dates me!) Yeah, I know that song has nothing to do with opposites.
So then thought more about opposites and that if one did not exist, neither would the other. Maybe that’s what attracting means?!
Opposites both attract (bees and flowers?) and repel (cats and dogs?) and both are necessary for this world to exist.
Kinda like yin and yang in Asian philosophy.
Getting way too philosophical here!
I really did not want to do something complicated so went back to my first thoughts: black and white even though I don’t know if they attract.
This quilt is titles: Cold nights, Birds fly. I know birds do not fly at night, but here they do.
