    I came across this and it sounds wonderful. Minick & Simpson from Moda and the Semper Fi Fund are doing this for our Soldiers....they are asking all quilters to donate 1 block from the pattern (see link), you write your name & State on the block and then send to Moda, they'll square up blocks and assemble the quilts & distribute to wounded soldiers. What a great idea!
    Here's the link for the pattern: http://www.unitednotions.com/LA_just_one_star.pdf

    Let's all try to do 1 block!

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I will do one and I'm going to ask the ladies I quilt with on Tuesday to each do one also.
    Thanks for letting us know about this project.

    count me in too. I printed out the pattern so I can take it with me to the store to get material. Can't find my red or blue. Only found a little that I was going to send to miss gigglewings and haven't done it yet.

    Thanks for posting the link - I'll even take it to guild and ask if anyone wants to help.

    Knowing how giving quilters are - I'll bet they end up with more than 100 quilts!

    One of my LQS is organizing this as well. People will drop off their blocks and then she will mail them off. She has alot of Moda fabrics in her store as well. Love the fact you are suppose to sign your block and state. Think it will be nice for whomever gets it to see how many people and where they are from worked their quilt.
