Hi there – and welcome to TGIFF over here at Faith and Fabric! I’m Jen, and if this is your first time here, welcome! You can learn a bit more about me and my business here.
You’re probably here for TGIFF – and a big amen to that, as thank goodness it’s Friday for sure! What a week it’s been…or what a few months, I should say, with everything we’ve been all collectively living through!
At the start of COVID, I held my first quilt along – it seemed to fit. You know – I’m crabby that we’re stuck indoors, you’re crabby that we’re stuck indoors, let’s be crabby together. The quilt-along got off to a great start, but then (duh-duh-duh-DUH) mask making took over. So, today, I have two shares for you when it comes to finishes!
The first finish I have are my masks. I’ve made almost 1,000! Making them has been extra fun, because I’ve been using the fabrics I design. I’m Catholic, and each of the fabrics features some of the beautiful imagery from our faith. Some of the masks have been sold in our shop, and some have been donated to hospitals throughout the country, as well as donated to those in various religious orders. Guess what? Some even went to the VATICAN! It’s such an honor to have been able to make and donate these!
My second finish is all the lovely little crabs I’ve been making. They’re an amazing scrap buster – and I love how well they’ve been turning out! It’s a great pattern to make, as there are so many variations in how you can assemble your crabs:
I also really like how well the crabs from some of the quilters in the quilt-along are looking – here’s a peek at some of them:
Your turn! What have you been finishing up this week? I’d love to see in the linkup below!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

As a designer, isn’t it so much fun to get to see how others put together a pattern? I’m amazed at how many masks you have made, thank you so much.
Yvonne, yes, seeing others making the quilt has been my favorite part of the experience. The colors and assembly they’ve chosen are so unique, and they’ve all made it their own. Yes – the mask making has been such a journey – feeling a bit amazed, too, at how many we’ve been able to make. Thankful for the opportunity to give back and help out.

Thanks, Anja – great to have you stop by!

Great job on the masks. Love the crabs.
Thanks, Karen! It was a lot of work, but thankful to be able to make them.
