Catherine Whall Smith . . . Catherine Whall Smith . . . is amazed that she has some “Corona Virus” fabric!

One of my favorite sayings is “SIMPLIFY! SIMPLIFY! SIMPLIFY! I even have that sign!

Studio Up-Date: the top of the first panel of my “Barriers” series is almost complete – will post that next Friday.

AND, “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance” #5 (shown below) is ready for my hand quilting.





This piece includes small fabric lines of what I’ve been calling the “Corona Virus “ fabric. I purchased this Black and White fabric many months ago – well before the pandemic. At the time, I didn’t know that the white print resembled the Corona Virus. I saved the selvage edge of the fabric so that I could reorder it at a later date. So far no luck finding more of the fabric.

“Hab.i.tat (a philosophy…a refuge…)” Michele D’Amore for BERNATEX Cotton Screen Print Style 3479) Note: I save the selvage edge of my fabrics to document each quilt.

So SIMPLIFY – the new CDC’s guide lines on staying safe post-lock down – wear masks, maintain your distance if you can, and limit your time with other people.

So SIMPLIFY – “If You Need to Ask . . . Wear a Mask!” the likelyhood of spread with a mask goes down to 3.1%.

Celebrate Connecticut’s “Hang a Quilt” Day – June 20th, 2020.
