Nobody Fights Alone Face Covering

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with a project for you that I thought I would have created back in March. The thing is I had no desire to make any of them since I work at a hospital and have to wear them all day long. Have you guessed what I’m talking about?

Yes, mask, wait, no face-covering. I decided to make some face-covering because an axillary group at my hospital decided to ask people from the community to make face-covering for individuals who can’t afford to get them and for those that live in hots spots within the hospital’s catchment area.

I saw the Nobody Fights Alone fabric from Riley Blake Designs, I knew it was time to make some face-covering.

Take a look at my Nobody Fights Alone Face Covering:

Making these face covering was so easy. I guess everyone knows that already, LOL.

Let’s talk about this fabric collection:

Nobody Fights Alone includes 13 fat quarters and one 35″ panel. This collection features classic icons representing nurses, doctors, EMS emergency dispatch, firefighters, police, and military on backgrounds of red, white, blue, black, gray, and a camouflage print.


Nobody Fights Alone Nurse Care Red
Nobody Fights Alone First Responder Red
White Aurifil Thread
HeatnBond Sew-In Interfacing
1/4″ Elastic Pins
Rotary Cutter
Cutting Mat

Let’s see what it takes to make these cute face-coverings:

Cut the fabric and interfacing to 9″ x 6″.

With the right sides together, place the interfacing on the wrong side of the top layer.

Sew the 9″ side of the fabric. Leaving an opening for turning.

Open the sides of the mask and add the elastic right up against the stitched lines. Try not to twist the elastic—pin in place.

Sew down the side, stretching out the fabric. Backstitching over the elastic ends.

Repeat on the other side.

Turn the fabric inside out and iron.

Fold three pleats and pin.

Sew all the way around, closing the opening and keeping the pleats in place.

Add a second stitch over the pleats for reinforcement but not necessary.

I will make 50 of this face-covering so that my department can participate in the project!

Gem Stone Lap Quilt

Hello and Happy July, everyone! 2020 has changed our lives in so many different ways. We can talk about all of the things we miss or haven’t been able to do, but I want to talk about what I’ve learned and loves about this stay at home time.

First, I saved so much money by not going anywhere or buy anything besides groceries. Second, I’ve been able to spend more time with my children. I realize how much I miss when we are off to school and work on a typical day. The third is more time to finish and start new crafts, LOL!!

Yes, I’ve been able to finish older projects and start new ones like my project that I want to share with you today.

Take a look  at my Gem Stone Lap Quilt:

The colors in this collection are so vibrant and fun.

Let’s take about this fabric collection:

Gem Stones Basics, by PSD2, is a stunning collection of fabrics featuring an ombre confetti design that runs selvage to selvage.

This collection contains 17 different prints.

Let’s dive into how to create this lap quilt:

Cutting fabric:

Cut 10 strips of different colors to 5 inches x the width of the fabric.

Sewing Strips:

Line the strips up in the order you want to see them as a quilt.

Place the first two right-sides together and sew a 1/4 inch down the length of the fabric.

Repeat this process until all of your strips are sewn together.

Once that is done, its time to cut the batting and backing.

Lay the quilt top on top of the batting and backing. Make sure the batting is bigger then the quilt top and the backing is more significant than the batting.

To make sure the quilt top doesn’t move, pin all three layers in place.

Now its time to quilt the quilt.

Once the quilting is finished, square up the quilt on all four sides.

The last thing to do now is to add the binding.

Cut 4 strips of 2.5 inch of the binding fabric.

Sew the strips together, then sew the binding to the quilt.

Sew the binding around the entire quilt.

Look at how pretty the Gem Stone Lap Quilt is!
