Quilters are by far some of the most generous people I know. While searching for possible charity projects that the guild might be interested in, I came across the Moda challenge, Just One Star. As part of the Quilts of Valor program, Moda is planning on making 100 quilts in 100 days. They need 1800 to complete the 100 quilts. When finished the Flag of Valor quilts will be sent to injured military personnel as they return to the United States from Iraq and Afghanistan.
True to this generosity, Thumbstall guild members are joining together to support this cause. At our monthly sew day earlier this week, we got together as usual to work individual projects. Some people worked on the star blocks while others were planning on completing them at home. Given the short time to complete these blocks (May 1) I was certainly heartened by their generosity. I’m anxious to see just how many blocks are actually finished by our monthly meeting next week.There is always time to quilt!
