Kathy McCalla also finished her Searching for Beauty quilt—I love the way she combined a traditional setting with the very non-traditional applique designs! Kathy wrote:

I wanted to thank you for your wonderful Covid patterns. I love to applique and this was especially fun to help us remember 2020.

The lock design in the quilting is totally perfect!

I know that at some point the memories of this year will fade (because that’s what memories do) and that these quilts will remind us of what we have lived through to get to the other side.

Kathy, thank you for sharing your lovely quilt with us!

Nancy Schmidt from Granville, OH, sent me pictures of her finished Searching for Beauty quilt. It is wonderful! Here is what Nancy wrote:

It was a joy working your pattern and especially creating the background fabric. The photos on the back side includes face masks I made, and reminders of hand washing and social distancing. Please note I added your name to the label because you provided so much inspiration for this project. What fun It was to make and will bring back memories of this strange event in time.

The photos on the back, along with the pieced squares, really are a nice touch!

Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your quilt with us! Your quilt truly does capture this strange time in our lives.

Michele Barrowcliff is this week’s very lucky winner! Congrats to Michele who will receive a much-coveted and rare copy of My Whimsical Quilt Garden which is out of print. It is still available as an eBook but this is a ‘real’ pattern.
