I’ve been showing you quilts as I finish them. Can you believe that I finished three quilts this week that I’ve shown you…I have another one for tomorrow and two more that I haven’t taken pictures of but are finished. That’s what happens when I have time.
I even put out a tutorial on making this quilt….
You can find that tutorial HERE.
I’ve been busy on the mask front too….
I made 25 one day…then made 25 another day. My total is up around 170. I had made 50 for the nursing home that Kelli works at. This week my goal is to make another 50 for them. I’ve had lots of family and friends request them too. Little by little, I’ll get masks to all the people I know who need them.
Here’s the pile I’ll be working on today.
I’m finding that more people who are working day to day and not in the medical field are wanting some now too. I really think it’s going to get to the point that they want people wearing them when they go outdoors no matter what your job is….
So, I make more masks.
I don’t do it all day long…a couple hours a day is enough. There is a real thing I’m calling mask fatigue…and it really is a little depressing making them. But 2 hours is do-able and helpful most days but today, it’s time for an all day affair of making masks so I can get them to the nursing home. I want to keep everything there safe but there is a lady there that I’ve loved since the moment I met her. If she was able, that lady would be making masks like nobody’s business…so I make them for her.
I do have to say that every batch I make goes a little faster. I learn how to do a step without pinning…I attach the ties a different way. It just seems more and more fluid. I can make a mask from start to finish in 15 minutes now. I think it’s a little faster if I do it more assembly line though. This is with making the ties.
I shipped some fabric to my great nieces. They have been making some. You might remember those are the girls I gifted a sewing machine to a couple years ago. I’m so proud of them.
I’ve wanted to work on my mystery quilts….here is the next clue from the mystery from Quilted Twins….I’ve sewn nothing on it.
I wanted to Quiltville’s sew along but that hasn’t happened either. I’m making masks.
Temecula Quilt Company has a sew along too. I did manage to get two of the blocks done….See? Continue reading
