After reading the challenge, I started googling for ideas and found one that just leaped off the page at me. This image (8th one down on that page) made me think of some B&W striped fabric I had in my stash, but alas, I didn't have enough of it (and no more at the quilt shop, I checked!). But I started in, and knocked this one out in 4 hours.
The striped fabric was strip cut and reassembled to alternate the strips. The inset circle was doing with Cathy Miller's circle technique (found in her songbook, page 41, and I was the hand model!). Quilted with black and white variegated thread (King Tut!), and simply bound. Done.
Fun to just play. A lot of the gestalt work struck me as also Op-Art.... and I love it when things come together so fast!... Comments of course are welcome and appreciated.
