    It has been an honor and a privilege to make this quilt for one of our soldiers. Some of you might remember the "Just one Star" by Moda challenge ?? Moda asked the quilters of America, earlier this year to make and send in "Just one Star" and that they wanted 18 hundred blocks.... the quilters stepped up, and sent in over 21 THOUSAND blocks. After 21,000 they stopped counting and still had more packages to open. So Moda turned back to the quilters and said now please help us make all these stars into quilts. I was given 15 blocks and here is what I did with them.
    Thank you for taking a look.

    That quilt is so special. I cannot imagine the look on the soldier's face who will receive this. You have provided so much love and encouragement for someone who is giving of their life for our freedoms.
    Thank you so very much for using your talent to gift a soldier. You are a special lady.
