Created to Complete

Wow--after a few 2:30AM nights--I have a finished McCall's Quilt Design Star Final challenge quilt!!!
With the theme of Opposites Attract--I went with the Compliments Complete theme--same thing just a little different.
 On the color wheel Blue and Orange are directly opposite of each other and therefore called Complimentary colors. They were each created by the Master Designer in such a way as to fill in the gaps for the other color. Always working perfectly together to bring out the best in the other color. The cool blues of bone chilling ice and the warm oranges of a cracking fire make for a great word picture to understand just how wonderfully Complimentary colors work. How would an orange snowstorm feel--or a blue sunshiney day--that just isn't right!!
The definition of Complimentary--mutually supply each other's lack; serving to fill out or complete.
With this definition in mind, Loren and I are the perfect complimentary colors. Both created by the Master Designer in such a way to combine our strengths and weaknesses to totally completely understand and "get" each other.
In the opposites that follow see if you can pick out the pattern---optimist/pessimist, dreamer/realist.random/controlled,procrastinate/prompt,calm/wound-tight,spiteful/forgiving and this last one should give it away--oldest/youngest.  Yes, I am the first one in all the opposites...
 
So just a quick little overview of "Created to Complete!!"
