Just One Star!

Have you read about this?
A very awesome & worthy project,  

It's a challenge by Moda to piece, quilt,
and bind 100 quilts in 100 days
using the Flag of Valor pattern
by Minick & Simpson.

(images shamelessly swiped from the Minick & Simpson blog)

All that is needed from each of us is

Just One Star.

Read all about it here and here.

I brought this to my lqs owner's attention
and we are making plans to
get her shop customers involved.
I am so excited!
I'll keep you informed.

You can do this on your own.
Or with your friends, quilt shop or guild...whatever.
If every one of us made Just One Star,
the goal will be met.

The easy-to-follow instructions are found here.

I made my Just One Star block in about 45 minutes,
including cutting time.
No, it's not sides are not even and
my tails are all hanging out.
I used photoshop to crop and square it up.
Remember, they want to trim the blocks!

I would love to see the one you make!

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10

I have downloaded the pattern with the best of intentions... ;-) One more hour until my weekend starts! Yippee!

Ok...I've downloaded the instructions and actually I'm pretty pumped to try this! I haven't quilted in a long time. I measure horribly, but maybe I can change my ways. I'll scout out some material this weekend and give it the old college try! Wish me luck!
