The Mod Squad met Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is what was accomplished today...well, accomplished by those of us who wanted to do modern.  On the left is the block that Adrienne made and graciously wrote the directions, and gave us a demonstration on how to make this block.  It seems like other members were busy working on other projects and I was the only one who completed this month's block.  Mine is on the right.  Okay, I know it doesn't look exactly like Adrienne's but this is modern and we can do what we want. (grin).  A special thank you to Adrienne for preparing the block, writing the instructions, and giving us a demo.
After the demonstration, Adrienne worked on this scrappy project.  She said the pattern is Scrap Vortex and is from Crazy Mom's quilt along. 
Judi A. showed us this little leather pouch she made.  Can you believe this...all that decoration on the pouch is porcupine quills.  Awesome.
You would think this was a Happy Scrappers meeting what with all the scrap projects.  Judi A. worked on this wonderful quilt today.  It is like a Jelly Roll quilt, but she is using her scraps to make it.  Fantastic.
Peggy F. worked on making this pinwheel quilt.  She said it is for her cottage.  She said the boarder fabric is blue with deck chairs on it.  Can't wait to see this one finished.
I'd like to introduce you to Keira who is Rosa's granddaughter.  Keira decided to join us this afternoon and worked right along with us.  Above she is busy making a pillowcase.
Ten-year-old Keira shows us her finished pillowcase.  She does a great job for being so young.  And she did it all by herself!

Love your modern blocks! I'm working on a scrap vortex too. I hope to make more progress on it today. Kiera's pillowcase turned out great! Love to see kids sewing!
