I am fortunate to have a room that receives late afternoon sunlight through the windows. They do however make unusual colours of quilts. The back of this quilt is White Magna Glide Classics 1900+ metre of it.
There are those shadows playing colours again. 9 different colours of Glide #40 and two of Glide 60wt used for the quilting.
I have Daylight lighting in my studio, plus 3 metres of windows on a northern wall. When you use your longarm table to sew on a hanging sleeve and for 3 random designs on the back the sleeve matched the facing.
Glide 60wt thread is a finer Glide Thread without as much sheen as 40 wt thread. It is still a filament polyester thread, lint-free, giving great definition to small designs and tiny fills when quilting. It is also the same thread that is on the Magna Glide Classics pre-wound bobbins. These M class bobbins hold 203m of thread. I put my partially used ones in my sewing kits as they are excellent for applique, hand piecing and EPP. The small size and the magnetic core come in handy.
Since I cannot post a PDF to my Facebook or Instagram pages I thought I would put it here, so that my family and friends could use it also.
This is a 4 layer mask with an opening for a filter product, should you choose to use one. Research says that using a higher thread count fabric is better, batik fabrics work well, silk is possibly good for the inner layers as softer on the skin too.
The size for “longer/wider” faced people could be adjusted by extended the centre section of the pattern both horizontally and vertically. Measure from the tip of your nose to the base of your chin, this pater will work for those less than 3″.
Covered nose wire, helps to keep the mask gaps free over the nose. Using 1″ strips cut from around a t-shirt make a soft tie for around the head. I use a loop around my neck and a tie at the top of the head. OR rather than a tie I thread the two ends of the tie through a bead and knot, then use the bead as a movable tightener.
