Super Hero Avenue

As I was pulling fabrics to donate, I found a remnant of a super hero fabric that I had used to make pillow cases. They characters were the perfect size for fussy cutting and using in the Village quilt that I am making.

The Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild has a Storybooks and Quilts to Go program. I have the number of the contact person, because I may be interested in participating. The kits have quilt themed story books.
Or, I might just do something on my own. When my granddaughter was in kindergarten, I went to be a guest reader in her class. I read Bear Says Thanks by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman. Bear and his friends all sat on a quilt for story time. As part of the after reading activity I planned, each student made a paper block to build a classroom quilt.
I am thinking of making my own story-quilt kit for the Village quilt. I have friends who are still teaching, and it would be fun to write some lesson plans for them to use after I read the story. It would not be a quilt themed story, but I think the children would enjoy sitting on the quilt to hear the story. Then they could spend time looking and talking about the characters who live in each house.There are quite a few books on homes, community, and maps and it would be easy to create lesson plans based on these books.
I will have to finish this quilt before I even think of building a story kit. The idea is still on my Maybe List.
