Mary Coombs sent me this photo of her covid quilt (Covid-19 and it’s Mutations) done with my Searching for Beauty pattern. Mary wrote:
While I didn’t like the disease taking a year from normal life, it was fun to choose fabric from my stash and use some up. Certainly been a year for that activity. Thanks for all you do! Mary Coombs. Winslow, ME
Mary, thank you for sharing your quilt! It’s bright and cheerful and I like that especially now that we are coming back into normalcy. Maybe not the old normal, but close :-).
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.

Amy Lumley sent me photos of her recently completed Searching for Beauty quilt. I love the fabric choices, especially the border fabric that goes so perfectly with her blocks. Here’s what Amy wrote:
Please look closely at the label on the back. I’m still working during the day but every night I looked forward to working on this wall hanging. You do beautiful work. Thank you for offering this to us.
That’s George, Amy’s cat, on the quilt back. She says that “he is always in my photos as he thinks ever quilt I own (which is a lot) is his”. I have a cat like that too
