Face Masks 2

Since I wasn’t happy with the pattern that I used previously, I tried another tutorial for making face masks.

I am much happier!

Covid-19 Face Masks

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!

Quilt on!

Disappearing Nine Patch Completed

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!

Disappearing Nine Patch Update

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!

July OMG Goal 2019

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!
