Who doesn't love inspiration? The 2020 Island Batik Ambassadors were sent a couple of our Block on Boards® (BOBs) to use in their March project and boy, did they deliver! Let's take a break today and look at the beauty these quilters have created.
As the CDC's (Center for Disease Control) recommendations continue to call for more face masks due to the COVID-19 crisis, hundreds of articles and how-to guides have popped up online and thousands of quilters, sewists, crafters, DIY’ers, and members of the Maker Movement have started creating homemade masks. AccuQuilt is known for being a creative company that provides solutions to make cutting fabric fast, accurate, easy and safe.

The world is a little different right now, but we're in this together. In keeping with our promise to help you be inspired, get involved and stay connected, we thought we would share some of our favorite ways to do all three. Did we miss something you're using while quilting under quarantine? Tell us in the comments or on Facebook or Instagram with the #QuarantineQuilting hashtag.
