Quilting is more fun than Housework has us working on scraps.

The postcards above are all from tiny scraps.
I'm still cutting 1.5" strips from my string bins.
Now, I seem to have lot of smalllllll scraps.
I'll need to find a project for them.

Gyleen Fitzgerald has some fun things happening on Facebook. 

One of them is a COVID Woven class.
I have the outside edge being worked on, I'm about half done.
I'll post a photo of it when that is done.

I'm also working on some pineapple blocks, which are on the right-hand side.
I have 36 of them done.
I'm caught up on June's 30 and ahead on July by one. :)

Marianne Urban

I posted here about Marianne passing away.

Jean is making five quilts for the family.
Four are masculine and one feminine.
If you would like to make some blocks for the quilt, she is requesting 9" finished churn dash blocks.
This is the one feminine one I finished and will be working on the four masculine blocks.
If you are interested in making them, let me know and I'll get you Jean's address.

Marianne will be missed.

Woven and pineapples

T-shirt quilt

I'm linking to 
Small Quilts and Doll Quilts Design Wall Monday and Monday Makings.

postcards

I needed to make a few postcards.
This is from UFO stitch outs of cats from years ago.
The border is from the leftover pineapple cuts. 
Love using my scraps.
My seashore landscapes

Masks, useful or not

This is a video about the wearing of masks and how it helps.

Here are a few I made this weekend at the request of my DD and DH.

I like the 3D masks because they are not touching my mouth.
They also fit the side of my face better.

I say let's keep on making them and help those around us.
