Just One

Just one block.  That's all I managed to sew this week, but that's all the Just One Star quilt project needs—one block from many quilters!

I heard about this worthy cause earlier this week from Jenny, and my reaction was, One block?  I can do that! 

It's explained in this post on Moda Lissa, but essentially, Moda Fabrics is participating in a Quilts of Valor challenge program to piece, bind, and quilt 100 comfort quilts for military service members and veterans.  This particular challenge is called Just One Star.

To reach their goal of 100 quilts, they need a total of 1800 star blocks, the directions for which can be found here


The quilts will look something like this when completed:

If you'd like to make a block for this effort, there's plenty of time.  Just follow the instructions linked in the previous paragraph and mail it by May 1, 2011 to the address given in the instructions.

Just one block for Just One Star.  It doesn't seem like much, but it's enough!

Whoop Whoop! That is a great block for a great cause.

My problem is, that I won't be able to stop at just one.
