About This Quilt
My Pandemic Journey 5 - by Louise Donovan.

Dark green – with dark blue and red squares – the quilting design has returned to the circles emphasising chaotic movement.

Green is the dominant colour. It is now approaching Christmas and the prospect of a vaccine is being heralded. My artist friend Jessica in the USA writes ‘The piece seems really seasonally appropriate with the red and green – I don’t know if this was intentional or not – while the black patches are a stark reminder of all the lives lost and evoke a sense of grief amidst all the bright and festive trappings of Christmas. This will be a grim season for many families. At the same time the overwhelming presence of green indicates a sense of hope and rebirth … interestingly timed to coincide with the start of distribution of the vaccine.’
