Habiller la pandémie

Une exposition virtuelle de masques de protection faciale Covid-19 du monde entier

Patchwork quilt mask

Toronto maker, Alexis Venerus sought relief during Toronto's COVID lockdown by making masks. She said, "Although quilting has been a part of my mother's family… I haven't really embarked on any quilt making. As I am making masks there are certain shapes that keep ending up as scraps and I saved them to experiment with. The quilted mask is one such experiment." Her “experiment” is constructed from 44 triangular pieces that emerge as left-over waste from making other masks. The patchwork quilt mask is a meditative work of patience and care.
