A Great Project

I'm sure you have heard of the "Just One Star Project" promoted by Moda.  If not let me tell you what it is.   It is a challenge to piece, quilt and bind 100 quilts in 100 days using the "Flag of Valor" pattern by Minick and Simpson.  The deadline for star blocks is May 1, 2011 so they can meet their quilt deadline by Flag Day, June 14, 2011.  They need 1800 blocks to reach their goal.  You can go to and see a tutorial on making the block and the address to send them.  The quilts will be donated thru the Semper Fi Fund.  So take a few minutes and make a block.   Here are my blocks.

I also got my last blocks for the Thread Head Quilt-a-Long Quilt done.  Today I hope to start sewing the rows together.  I wasn't sure if I could do them
in 6 1/2".  But I drafted them using EQ5 and they worked out
okay, however I had some strange measurements.   I am so glad I joined in on the fun.  Can't thank Joanne enough for the inspiration.

And finally, I wanted to let you know about a great giveaway.  Jilly over at Jillys Happy Quilts is giving away to FQ Bundles.  So hope on over and leave a comment for a chance to win some fabric.

Wishing you a quilty day.   Hugs, Cat
