As I write this we are still quietly quilting in quarantine lockdown – though some of us not so quietly. We are quilters and that is what we do. We stop for only the essentials such as getting another cup of something to sip, potty breaks, and a snack to keep us going. Well, another essential task added to the list is making face masks.
My favorite mask pattern: Versatile Mask
We are not able to have an in person sew day at this time. ACQ is proposing a virtual sew day for us to connect on line. We can work on quilts and share thoughts about quilts to donate. Show and Tell for Charity Quilt would be wonderful. We can continue what we have learned from our virtual meetings. Since May 16th ACQ does not have a workshop scheduled, we will have a virtual Charity Sew Day in its place.
I started the year making 9 patch blocks and last month I needed to laugh so Wonky Star Blocks made the list. I have lots of blocks and need to put them together. I suggest these patterns or anything that makes you happy. Wonky Star Blocks from Missouri Star Quilt Company: Large Wonky Stars and Small Wonky Stars
I have one more thing I am happy to report. Thanks to Carole and Joan I was able to exchange kits, tops and projects ready to quilt. Imagine three quilters tossing these items to each other in a parking lot. We looked good with our fancy face masks and gloves. If anyone else is in need of a Charity quilt kit or fabric, please contact me.
