I did another round of sewing masks for the local family health team and emptied another spool of my favourite Aurifil thread.
I picked out some of my favourite bright and happy fabrics hoping to cheer people up. It's onerous to wear a mask, especially in the hot summer, but it's important to try to do everything we can to prevent even the slightest chance of passing on COVID to our friends and neighbours ....and so we carry on sewing masks and wearing them.
I made 8 childrens' size in dinosaur fabric, and 20 adult size in fun bright fabric. They seem to need them as fast as we can sew them.
And then I took a break to sew the little piggy block into a quilt top. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and votes on Monday's blog post. This is the layout that was preferred. I sewed a white border around the pig, and then started filling in the empty spaces with chunks of background fabric.
And here is the finished quilt top. I hope to do some machine and hand quilting, and finish it this weekend. I can't decide whether to call this "Pandemic Pig" or "This little (greedy) piggy". Or do you have another suggestion for a name?
