I finished this “Corona Quilt” a month or two ago. It is scrappy, and now lives on my bed. It turns out I had forgotten to put my daughter’s plaid quilt in my journal. Thus, the jump from #69 to #71.
Anyway, my friend and quilt mentor Sariah made one of these quilts a few years ago, and I love everything she does. I tucked the pattern in the back of my mind for something to try down the road. When the early quarantine happened, I started hacking away at these scraps. I finished it in August, which made this one of the fastest large quilts I have ever made. Typically a big, small pieced bed quilt will take me over a year. That just goes to show you how much therapy I needed during quarantine.
I am happy with how my feather quilting is coming along, and I liked my little flames on the mountains. You can also lay this quilt out as a Chinese lantern quilt. However, I thought that looked a little too much like a certain virus we are all trying to avoid like the plague. I decided to do a sunrise layout, and the quilt cheers me up every time I make my bed in the morning or climb into it at night.
