We make quilts, sometimes, to depict what's happening in the world around us. When I saw images of the Covid-19 virus, with its round shape with funky protuberances, I knew I had to draw it. I am in no way making light of the havoc caused by the virus—rather, this is one way of trying to makes sense of the situation we find ourselves in.
The block designs are loosely based on images of the Covid-19 virus. Each step pushes the abstraction further. These blocks can be made by hand or machine. Use applique, wool applique, embroidery, painting, and/or any other method that interests you.
You can find How-To videos that go with Searching For Beauty online at Creative Spark (without ads!) or on YouTube.
Blocks are 6" x 6", 8" x 8", and 16" x 16" finished size. You are welcome to enlarge or reduce to suit your project.
Please do send pictures of anything you make using this pattern and I'll post them!
