Moda ( http://modafabrics.blogspot.com/2011/03/just-one-star.html ) had a challenge to make 100 quilts in 100 days for the Quilts of Valor Program ( http://www.qovf.org/index.html ). They needed star blocks to acheive this accomplishment and put out a call to quilters all over to make and donate 1 star block.
This is the awesomeness of quilters: 12,000 star blocks was donated, enough to make 1000 quilts! The generosity quilters have in their heart is beyond anything I have seen.
The Quilts of Valor program presents quilts to our injured servicemen and women.
Now that the blocks are received Moda is asking for our help once again to help assemble and do the quilting. You can read about it here on our Etsy quiltsyteam blog, dated June 25, 2011. Titled Star Light, Star Bright.....
