Hawaiian Block.

Love this blue and green one.  Is this the last of your 12?

I'm making masks for Mishii.  These are the first 3 trials.  The men's size is the one that fits me.  Today I'm making some of novelty fabrics to add a little fun.

Men's size is what fits me too. I changed them, though, to put shoestrings along the top and bottom instead of loops of elastic, which hurt my ears. A coworker figured out another trick, tho, if you have these type--paperclips! Put a paperclip through each loop and hook them together. You can put it above your ears or down like a necklace, she said, and it keeps your glasses from falling and the mask from bugging your ears. :D Win! All my coworkers want me to make them one, but I don't have time to mass produce. There is one coworker, though, who has really taken care of me quite often (and even made a dinner just for me and brought in on her day off one day, just cause I said I was craving it!). I will make her one Monday...I am certain I couldn't make them for all that work there! It's a big facility, and even my small section (5 units) has about 75 per day working (nursing staff, which includes aides) if we were fully staffed (Bwhahah!)


Your masks are gorgeous!

This is the penultimate .... unless I decide i want to make it larger,  in which case, more blocks will be needed.  Decisions, decisions.




How wide is the elastic you are using, and how long are you making the elastic pieces?

Such happy quilts. Beautiful job.

Cathy I like Yours with the shoestring ties, The ones I have been making have that elastic strings. and yes they do hurt the ears. i would like to try some, what would be the length of ties? Pat Beal 




From: bornblesse2


Pat, I try to make the ties about 19”.  Some are shorter, but I aim for 19”.

ittakes longer to make these, but I did t have elastic.

i did find some bpughten bias tape that I stitched and used those.  

Well, darn! I obviously can't count. I thought I'd done the math with these mini-9s I found, but I guess not. I'm going to have to make about as many more...<groan> LOL!!!
