I spent today sewing with some silky, cotton voiles from Anna Marie Horner. I cut the fabrics into 5 inch strips and then recut into charm squares. I also cut charms of Essex linen blend.

The two fabrics were layered and then cut in wonky fashion to make each block. Part voile, part linen.

The resulting blocks were trimmed to 4 1/2 inches.

The blocks created this quilt.....ready for final sewing and borders.

I am calling it "Spiraling Into Control"

It's All I have to Bring Today

Happy Valentine's Day from Sew On Studio
and one of my very favorite poets.

It's all I have to bring today --
This, and my heart beside --
This, and my heart, and all the fields --
And all the meadows wide --
Be sure you count -- should I forget
Some one the sum could tell --
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

Emily Dickinson

I hope you have a LOVELY DAY of fabric, thread, sewing and quilting.
