Moda is spear heading a drive to create 100 quilts, Just One Star, for the Semper Fi Fund. Several bloggers are holding giveaways to encourage people to participate. I've sent two star blocks of this morning and wanted to make sure you all know about it.
All you have to do is make 1 block from the pattern provided and mail it to Moda. Easy peasy.
Why you may ask is a Canadian getting involved in a program for American military personnel? Several reasons, one my husband is a proud American from a military region in North Carolina.
I know many wives, daughters, sisters and mothers of American servicemen and women.
And I think it's a good idea. One of the reasons I love quilting and quilts is because of the comfort they can bring.
You can support troops and honour their service, without agreeing with the politics of their mission.
I've also been inspired to look into making some for our Canadian service personnel. How about maple leaf blocks? Anyone interested?
