Just One Star {Finishing the quilts}

In April Moda started a challenge called Just One Star. The goal was to make, from start to finish, 100 quilts for 100 brave men and women wounded in fight in 100 days. They asked everyone to make and donate, Just One Star. Kathleen and I made a couple stars and sent them in. 

Last week I heard that Moda was in need of some help machine quilting these quilts. I couldn't resist helping out. Since I have uncles, grandpas and cousins who have all served our country I just knew I needed to help out more. I was sent three of the quilts and spent the whole day yesterday quilting them.
They look all pretty don't they :)
Me and my ADD had to quilt each one of them differently.
So, I stippled one.
Quilted Stars and Loops all over one.
And quilted Swirls on one.

Thanks so much to the awesome people at Moda for putting this together. Polly and Laurie blogged a little more about the success of this yesterday, they mentioned that Moda now has more like 1000 quilts. AWESOME!

  3. They look fabulous! I'm wondering if any of your stars have "Mary Miller, OHIO" written on them. It's a complete longshot, but it would be so cool if you quilted one of my stars!

  6. Love them...and how amazing that you were willing to donate so much time for custom quilting on each one! I sent a block in, so maybe one of mine was in one of those quilts. This has just been a fantastic project for all involved!

  8. I loved being apart of this. I only wish that I could have done more stars.
    I wanted to ask if one of the stars on the quilted swirls was mine? I am asking because it looks like it. If it is not I will not be a bit disapointed. Like I said I loved doing this and it was an honor to do.

    Thank you miltary spouces and miltary personal for all that you do!
