    I can not post pictures. It did not say we had to use Moda fabric. Please make a star.

    Thanks for the link...

    I am going to present this to our 4h sewing club. This would be a great service project for our children to undertake.

    I made two and will send today or tomorrow. Sent an e-mail to my daughter in VA and told her I had a project for her. The next day she e-mailed me from work, said she had done two and they were already mailed. She was always ahead of me from the day she was born.

    I made a copy for my guild President, we do make Quilts of Valor. Not much time to use their new fabric if they want blocks by May 1st. I have to travel to find it. I'll make one to start with my fabric.

    I presented this to our quilt quild last Friday. Hopefully there will be about 30 blocks that will be turned on April 5. I will then send them to the address listed on the letter.

    I printed the pattern and have pulled out fqs to make two blocks. They'll be done this weekend. Moda should get lots of response!

    I have now got my fabrics I'm going to use. Will work on them this weekend. It is a worthwhile project. My DH is retired military and has served overseas. My heart goes out to those families whose loved ones are over in Iraq and Afghanastan.
