Art Masks

I've been playing around making "art" masks that are functional while unique.  Here are a few I've done so far.  I plan on entering at least one (maybe more as there does not appear to be a limit on entries) in this "Unmask Your Creativity" contest by Women of Color Quilters Network.

This one is "6 ft."
 "If you can read this you are too close.  Back off."
 This one is a formal one made of black linen with beaded ribbon.
 "2020 reset" appliqued over fabric that looks like newsprint.

More Face Masks

I've made a few more face masks.  A few of these went to friends but most of them went to the custodial workers at UAMS (via a friend who asked for them). All of these were made using the  Olson Mask pattern.

Face Masks

Like many others I have been making face masks.  I have used three different patterns -- the Rona Mask (only made one of these), a pleated face mask from Teresa Down Under, and the Olson Mask pattern (I like making this one the most).  Not sure which one wearers like the most.  So far mine have only gone to family, friends, and co-workers.

I made this small quilt, 18 in X 24 in, to enter into the Sacred Threads "Backyard Escape" healing quilt exhibit. I hope it will be chosen to travel with the exhibit.  The quilt is machine appliqued and quilted.
