Just One Star

As the mother of a United States Marine, how could I not participate in the Just One Star project?  If you haven't heard, Moda Fabrics is putting together quilts that will be donated to injured soldiers through the Semper Fi Fund.  They are asking quilters to donate one star block to help with the enormous task of making 100 quilts before Flag Day, June 14, 2011.  Will you also donate a star block in support of the brave men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe and free? 

Complete details along with the block pattern and instructions can be found at http://www.unitednotions.com/LA_just_one_star.pdf

What a simple way for quilters to show compassion and support ! I would imagine Moda will receive far more star blocks than they expect.

The "Just One Star" idea is brilliant! I am never felt confident in my ability to make a Quilt for Valor quilt, but the one block request is perfect.

I will do my best to get just one star mailed by May 1 ... my uncle was a career Marine officer and his son enlisted in the Corps for 8 years.
