Today I'm taking a deep breath and relaxing - just a little bit - from all the craziness going on around here related to the move. Yesterday we closed remotely on the Arizona house, and as I mentioned in Monday's post, the STL house is under contract. Today is a good day to get back to semi-regular programming, at least until the craziness starts up again.
Back in October my friend and long arm quilter Sandy returned two of my quilts. One of them is Corona Medallion, and you can see Sandy's pics of the quilting here. I love the quilting design she created for it. I bound it before the craziness hit, but I wasn't able to get photos then.
Corona Medallion was actually named before the virus came along, named for the shape created by two of the Dresden fan blocks together. But now the name has another meaning, very fitting for 2020.
I made this quilt for myself, and I've been using it as my sofa quilt. I loved the process of searching out and selecting all the fabrics for the palette. A few of the blades were fussy cut to feature the prints.
I asked Sandy to emphasize the negative space where the blades come together, because it makes an interesting shape, and she did.
I loved everything about the process of making this quilt and I'm pleased with how it turned out.
