Show and tell…

This quilt was made by Denise, Beth, Vidhu, and Jen who are part of the UF Infectious Diseases and Global Medicine department in Gainesville, FL. They decided to mark the fight against Covid-19 with a quilt to hang in their office space.

I’m impressed! First, with the job they have been doing all this year. And second, that they carved out the time to be creative. Well done and thank you for sharing your quilt with us!

I love the little Covids that they added to the Searching for Beauty pattern. They add depth to the design. I wish I had thought of that myself! (You can find the free how-to videos I made on YouTube or on Creative Spark.)

If I remember correctly from a previous email, they plan to collect signatures on the back of the quilt. The little Covid in the corner is a patch crediting me with the design which is a nice touch. They need to add their names and other documentation info to the quilt as well—perhaps that will happen as they gather signatures?

Denise knows about Jim, so she included a photo of Vidhu’s family’s cat in the Christmas tree!!! It took me a while to find him…

I’m guessing that he is the only ornament that tree will wear this year 😂. I am not going to let Jim see this picture. He has enough bad ideas in his head already.

Thank you Denise, Beth, Vidhu, and Jen, for sharing your quilt with us! Stay healthy, and happy.

  1. Great quilt. My favorite part is all the little Covid viruses floating around on the quilt. It’s the way I’ve thought about the virus since March, they are all just floating around out there waiting for me or someone in my family walking into one or some of them.


  2. My thanks to these warriors and all who have been working in any capacity to guide us through this COVID fight. We are out here trying to stitch away our stress and cheering for you all! Go Gators!


  3. I like the Covid-19 quilt. If fact I have one partially made. What else to remember the 19lb I gained from not running around. I found I’m not alone with that problem, those without children to teach and keep busy. 😊
