Created very early on during the first lockdown of 2020. Artist Deanna Tyson invited friends to contribute a patch to a quilt that represented the new phenomenon of Social Isolation.
The backing of the quilt is an old NHS blanket and many quilting lessons were learnt from the quilt which was a challenge to put together. It captures the novelty and the strangeness of the first March 2020 Lockdown.
