The Spin

The pink is a quilted pillow cover for my mom. I couldn't resist quilting the whirl in the center.

Spin, turn, twirl, twist and whirl. It is the image and idea I have lately for everything I want to make and quilt. I like the way it can be something flowing inward or outward depending how you look at it - or depending how you think of it. It is everywhere outside now - leaves unfurling and untwisting. Petals opening and reaching for the sky. The season changing, turning and spinning. I am thinking a lot about traditional quilt blocks - simple and graphic.
