Since I wasn’t happy with the pattern that I used previously, I tried another tutorial for making face masks.
I am much happier!
I like Julie’s (The Crafty Quilter) tutorial. It is well written, has options, and I can leave it on the screen (once loaded) without internet access. I am rural, so internet access isn’t always available. Therefore, I limit video time, such as You Tube.
I choose to use a different fabric for the reverse side. This allows the wearer to know which side he/she has been wearing towards the face.
I also choose to stitch the ties down instead of threading them through the casing. I think it is easier to use them.
Stay safe! Stay healthy!
I have completed my version of the Disappearing Nine Patch from Julie Cefalu’s Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt Along.
I decided to quilt an edge to edge called Mountain Laurel. I am not a frame quilter, but I am so happy because I had no tension issues whatsoever!
I am also happy to have another finish!
This was a fun quilt along and it is an easy quilt to make! Great for gift giving, or if you are looking for something to cozy up with this winter!
I joined Julie Cefalu’s Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt Along, and have really enjoyed the process.
I have completed turning my 20 nine patch blocks into disappearing nine patch blocks. Fun!
I have also sewn all of these blocks into a flimsy! It was windy, but I did manage to get a couple of photos.
Julie has a link up for her participants. I am headed over there to see all of the fun variations that are linked up!
I have never made a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) quilt. Don’t ask me why this has been on my bucket list; it just has.
So when I saw that Julie Cefalu was hosting a D9P quilt along, I decided that now was the time to make one.
Julie’s instructions, diagrams, tips and even a size chart (for 5″ charm squares) is making an easy project just that much easier. I really appreciate her efforts!
I have fabric that I want to use up (and thread, too), so I am making blocks with choices that I would definitely not normally choose. That’s okay…someone somewhere will like it, and I am learning about value and design.
I have sewn 20 nine patch blocks.
I have even ‘spun’ the intersecting seams!
My goal for July is to cut these blocks up and sew them back together into a flimsy.
Thank you, Julie, for the diversion and the fun!
