Tuesday's Tile - Mixed Up and Confused?

Quilter's Tile - Mixed Up and Confused

In the box? Out of the Box? Why is there a box at all?

I couldn't resist playing with a bit of an optical illusion when I spotted the identical fabric in two different colorways. I added fusible to the backs of two identical prints, one pink and one orange, and cut out the beautiful bloom. Laying one over the other, I cut out two rectangles and interchanged the colors and fused. Because the fabrics are so close to the same value, the color change almost disappears. What does that say for value being more important than color? These fabrics were two strikingly different colors.

Of course, this experiment led to two Quilter's Tiles instead of just one. 

Just like twins, they were parts of one another and wanted to be together. Since I didn't have coordinating beads at hand, I made some from rolled fabric tubes and joined the two Quilter's Tiles.
