2020 “Mask to Remember”

  • Make a face mask, mini quilt, party mask… anything mask-related and 2020-related


Once again, we are challenging our members to complete projects they haven’t, try things they normally wouldn’t, and learn things they don’t know… all of which we will track in our annual passports.


This year we are hosting a Mystery Block of the Month project. Members will choose fabric based upon the color wheel and receive instructions each month, resulting in a finished quilt by the end of the year.


  • January – pick your fabrics
  • February – start making your blocks
    • Block patterns / instructions to be provided each month
    • Instructions will be specific to the size of quilt you choose
  • September – design your quilt layout
  • October/November – quilt
  • December – share your finished quilt!
