guess I'm not so original in the name - Fire and Ice.
So I took this challenge and really wanted to do a piece that incorporated both - my first thought was the yin yang symbol, my second was a tree one side fire the other ice. I found this polyester red scrap that I immediately started to piece. I had planned to make it wider but I decided the fire just the right width - then I made the ice in a gray with metallic gray thread - I decided to cut it in half and placed on horizontal stripes and the other vertical. My husband said it didn't feel like ice - to then I beaded the white stripes. Over all nothing like my original ideas I just let the scraps talk to me.
Final measurement 12x13.
