Slow Stitching and mask making

I am linking again to Slow Sunday Stitching.. 
Last Sunday I posted about my zen stitching piece that I had some indecision and put it away until another day.  I did finish it this week and took a photo.  I also finished the liberated log cabin mini quilt and info about it is in my last blog post.

The next photo shows the batik fabric I am using for masks and the purple is binding for ties.  
I just started another zen stitching using the doctor and nurse fabric and the end pieces I cut from the 10" batik squares.  I will finish this Stitch Meditaiton this evening.
  I needed 6 x 9 pieces for the masks I am making first and those little leftover pieces just needed to be in this stitchery!
I have been thinking of all the caregivers and everyone involved with this battle to stop the virus.   We are doing our part by staying home....only go out once a week for groceries.  

I have been researching mask making and have a list of several sites with tutorials for anyone who is interested.  There are a lot of tutorials available but this is just a few I saw:

Jenny Doan from MSQC quick and easy

Leah Day mask with filter pocket

an easy simplified pocket mask using t-shirt ties

The Crafty Quilter another kind of mask

Be sure to check what everyone else is doing today!
