Thank you Moda! ~ Just One Star

I got a wee surprise in the mail yesterday!

THANK YOU, Moda, for spear-heading this wonderful project! I’m sure you’ll have enough stars to do more than 100 quilts! 🙂

8 Just One Star Blocks

I just finished all 8 of my Just One Star quilt blocks…they’ll be mailed out to Texas tomorrow morning. 🙂

And this is what I get for gleefully telling April to look at the points on the first star…

You ever piece a block and go “rut-roh…there goes that point!” Big sigh.

I hope the quilters can use my blocks…I’m sure that they will receive way more than the 1800 that they need for 100 quilts. 🙂

Just One Star

I saw over on Rachel’s blog ~ ps i quilt that Moda has a challenge for all of us quilters/sewers.

Just One Star can comfort a soldier. The challenge is to piece, quilt and bind 100 quilts in 100 days using the Flag of Valor pattern by Minick and Simpson. The deadline for the star blocks is May 1 so that they can meet the Flag Day deadline.

The need 1800 star blocks to reach their goal…they will donate the 100 (I’m sure it will be more) quilts to the Semper Fi Fund.

Here’s the start of my eight I will be donating ~

ps: Rachel also has a challenge! 🙂
