Charity @ Mad Mod

Greetings from Mad Mod Charity!  I hope that you have had a great summer; it will be fun to have us all together again.  If you have a little free time, please consider helping with one of these projects:

Quilts of Valor:
We still are in need of blocks for our Valor quilt.
15″, divided on the diagonal….half white, half blue and red stripes.
Wonky stars would also be welcome.
I’d like to get this one finished up soon.

During the summer we started another type of block.  Any size, improv scrap block of white and off-white fabrics (solid or reading as solid) with a scrap or two of a bright solid in the block.

The “Not for the Faint of Heart” paper pieced umbrella:
I tried my hand at making a pattern; if you are experienced at paper piecing please take a try at this one!  I’ll have the pattern and gray background fabric at the meeting.  Waiting in the wings, I have some cool raindrop fabric to use along with the umbrellas.
I fell in love with this fabric from Stitchers’ Crossing!   It is now chopped into pieces….take home a chunk and make a cool block (any size) out of it.
As always, there will be superhero kits available at the meeting.  There will also be several superhero tops available for quilting.  These do not need to be elaborately quilted; the batt is Warm and White so the stitching can be widely spaced.  The completed ones are so much fun!
See you Thursday!!!!
