So mask making.... huge topic and huge amount of mask making going on across the world right now to try and stop the spread of COVID-19.
So what material should you use to make the most effective face mask possible?
Well, as I am a quilter and NOT a scientist, I will not dare to answer that question myself. However, I will share a link to an article dated April 20.2020 from the NY Times featuring scientific, research based, information to guide you in your choices if you are making your own masks.
Personally, I made my masks with Batik lining and 100% premium quilters' cotton on the outer layer. You could use elastic, twill tape, bias tape, some people have even cut up t-shirts to make ties.
I have a feeling that we will be wearing masks when in public, for quite a while so I hope that you find this article informative to guide you in your decision making.
