Just One Star Can Comfort a Soldier

Thanks to Betty Lou over at Sugarland Quilts for letting us know about this challenge from Moda!

As the saying goes, "many hands make light work"!  Diana and I are joining our hands with quilters all around the country to help Moda meet the challenge of 100 quilts in 100 days!  The blocks will be combined into quilts for soldiers who have been injured in the line of duty.  Moda needs 1800 star blocks to make these quilts.   All they are asking is for you to make just one star.  The deadline is May 1 so that the quilts can be completed by Flag Day, June 14.  Go to: for the pattern and all the details.

Here are the fabrics we have selected for our star blocks:  (Diana's is blue and mine is red.)

Our father served in the Army, my husband is in the Army, and Diana's son is in the Air Force. Her daughter-in-law also served in the Air Force. We hold the military near and dear to our hearts. As soon as we heard about the challenge, Diana and I immediately knew we would participate. Will you join us in helping Moda comfort our brave men and women of the military?


  1. Thank you LaDonna and Diana for helping to get the word out and making your blocks. Each one make one and soon there will be 1800. God Bless our troops.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing. I will join in. My son was in the Marines and my sweet niece that is getting married in May is in the Army. My heart goes out to the men and women that keep us safe.

  3. Thanks for the post and link. I will definitely be making a star. Our family is 98% military; my hubby retired after 31 years in the Navy, two sons are/were Navy, two DIL's are Navy, my two BIL's and FIL were Navy, my two sisters and brother were Navy, I was Navy, and my grandson has just joined....the Marines! He just HAD to be different! lol
