…but I didn’t really want to. I know it’s selfish of me, but it’s true. I was perfectly content working on my Quilty Project Lineup. Alas, I set selfishness aside to do some work for a good cause.
I work for Quicksilver Express Courier, a company that provides essential services to hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, patients, etc.; transporting swabs & other specimens for testing, as well as medications, supplies, and other necessary items. So, when I got a call from one of the owners saying we hadn’t been able to purchase masks for our couriers (because hospitals get first dibs on whatever is available), I rounded up some makers and got busy making masks.
I made 3 different styles. The pleated style w/ear loops and ties, an occlusive style by Bungalow Quilting, and a contoured style by Sew Much Moore. I made 42 masks total; 11 for family and the remaining 31 for Quicksilver. Our goal was 600 and we had 500 of those within 5 days! How awesome is that?! We are so very grateful to all the wonderful makers who answered our call!
Once the mask project was complete I went back to working on my Everything Goes Scrappy Trips. Prior to taking the mask-making break, I’d read a post by my good friend Katy which reminded me of what wonderful resources my AccuCut GrandMARK2 aka AccuQuilt Studio 2 and Giant Strip Cutter truly are. It cut production time in half!
I’m still stitching away on Everything Goes Scrappy Trips but I have a feeling this coming 3-day weekend will yield a king-size flimsy. Stay tuned!
And here is a double dose of cuteness before I close.

And precious great niece #2 on her quilt! She is the baby sister of great niece #1 who got the quilt in my last post. I made this quilt in 2018.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, stay healthy and God Bless!
