Pat Pauly “CHALLENGE YOURSELF” by Zoom. Pat is a member of our guild, living in Rochester. Known for her improvisational technique, she uses bold color and unusual juxtapositions of printed and painted fabric. With a mastery of diverse construction techniques, Pat Pauly has become a nationally sought-out quilt presenter. Her work has been shown in many quilt exhibits, including over ten times at the Schweinfurth. She will be presenting many, many slides of her work. Her presentation should be a bright spot on the horizon.
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

Tuesday, June 23, 7:00 PM - SHOW & TELL This will be the second Zoom Show & Tell program for our guild! Please show us quilts with star shapes. There are so many different star patterns, this Show & Tell will be lots of fun to see! If you have a quilt that deserves a Show & Tell, but it doesn't quite fit in, show it anyway! You can hold up the quilt or drape it over a couch or chair to show us and tell us something about the quilt. And... no one has to hold up your quilts! Suggestions for future Show and Tells are welcome!
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.
