instructions here. Moda Fabrics is sponsoring this challenge (coordinated by Marianne Fons) here. The goal is for participants to contribute 1800 star blocks (medium red or blue stars with a cream background) by May 1, 2011, so that they can be pieced, quilted and bound into 100 quilts using the Quilts of Valor pattern (by Polly Minick & Laurie Simpson). The finished quilts will be delivered to soldiers and veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan on Flag Day (June 14th).
I now realize that I used white instead of cream, so I don't know if it is a valid contribution. Perhaps I'll make a second one. The instructions specify that you need to write your name and state in brown pigma pen, which I don't have (but it gives me a good excuse to go to Joann's).
While I'm at Joann's, I may have to buy the most recent issue of this very inspiring magazine:
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
