SHOW & TELL
This month we are having another fun “Zoom” Show - & - Tell planned: Show us your Summer quilts: quilts without batting, or light quilts you use in the summer. Also, if you have certain quilts that make you think of summer, even if it is winter, we'd like to see them.
PATTERNS FOR FACE MASKS
Face masks are simple to make from small pieces of fabric. The patterns here will not provide complete protection from virus transmission, but they will remind you not to touch your face and provide some protection. Masks are now required in New York State for anyone in the presence of someone 70 or older.
Make them for yourself, your family, your friends. The first one on the list is the one requested by Cayuga Medical Center They can be dropped off at Bartels Hall on the Cornell campus or at Aafke's house.
Cayuga Medical's recommended pattern
"Surgical-syle" pleated rectangle mask pattern
This one is greatly improved with a dart or a piece of wire inserted over the nose to make it fit more snugly, although Cayuga Medical did not ask for that.
For this one, this video helps a lot

Measurements are metric, but you might find centimeters on one of your rulers.
Lori Benjamin, who is a hospice nurse in Florida now, recommends this one for health care personnel when nothing better is available or to cover their precious N95 masks.

PATTERN FOR SEAT BELT PILLOW
Here is the pattern for the seat belt pillow. The Cancer Resource Center would love to have us make these for cancer patients, so they can cushion their ports when they wear a seat belt. The pillow is small and easy, and a great way of using fun scraps.
