Superheroes and Unearthed Treasures.

 While I have been packing and unpacking my sewing room I have uncovered more donated UFOs so I am finishing them for donation and to make room for more of my stuff. These lovely little nine patches measure 3" finished and they were in a large bag with the alternate blocks of four patches. It's been fun to get them pieced together and into a top. I think I will add borders and this will make a nice male quilt for a Peter Mac client.
   Peter Mac have also asked for quilts with a Superhero theme for the kids undergoing treatment as they call them their superheroes. I have started making some blocks but it takes time so if anyone has any blocks with that theme, that they would like to donate, they would be very welcome.

 I quilted a cot panel and the picture below shows the squares I made for the backing, and I then quilted diagonally through the squares from the back so I didn't have to mark the quilting lines.

 I also found another top made from scrappy squares and used the donated top shown below as a front or backing. Again it made it easy to quilt using the squares and these quilts will be going to Anglicare for kids in Foster Care. I am busy getting 20 ready to drop off next week and just have one more to quilt and 4 to bind over the weekend.
It's great to get some of these lovely treasures finished and off to homes to give some kids a warm hug.
Hugs, Jan Mac

You have been really busy finishing off some UFOs. Love the first one particularly because, as you say, it is an excellent quilt for a man.
