A Moda Thank You

The other day my daughter got the mail and wanted to know why I got an envelope from Moda, and declared it felt like it had fabric in it…Now, I have to tell you that is pretty exciting news!

Inside was a nice thank you card from Moda, for contributing to the Just One Star Project.  Along with a little charm pack!  How fun is that!

If you don’t know about this project, Moda is collecting 1800 star blocks.  They will be making 100 quilts to be distributed through  the Sempi Fi Fund.  The shop has made kits for the blocks if you want to participate.  They are also sending a shipment of blocks in on Thursday if you would like yours added. Here are the details from Moda.

We invite you to join the Moda staff and designers in our  Challenge…

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 star blocks
is May 1, 2011 so that we can meet our quilt deadline
by Flag Day, June 14, 2011.
As the saying goes – “many hands make light work”.
We need 1800 star blocks to reach our goal.
Please take a few minutes to piece Just One Star block (click here for block pattern) using a medium red or blue and a cream background. Better yet, invite your small group or even your entire guild to make Just One Star block. Sign each block with your name and state.
Then we can truly say….the hands of a grateful nation comfort our soldiers!
We will coordinate the donation of the 100 quilts thru the Semper Fi Fund, a cause
that is near and dear to designers, Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson.


Here is what the star block looks like, pretty simple.

I finished another apron today for Crazy  Holly.  I wonder if I can get Rebecca to model another one?

Later, Sandra
