Some paper piecing and appliqué (either hand or machine) experience is recommended to sew this block, although the pattern does include a basic paper piecing tutorial.
The Yin and Yang motif is the classic symbol of duality - male / female, light / shadow, life / death - and represents complementary forces interacting as a dynamic system.
Another duality, that of alone / together, is illustrated by this geometric quilt design. Alone, with appliquéd circles nestled either side of the S-curve, the quilt block becomes a stylized Yin and Yang symbol. Blocks repeated together, without the circles, become something else entirely! As seen in thumbnails 2-5, the effects change radically depending on the colors chosen and orientation of the S-curves. Very zen.
