Opportunities to serve my country comes in many ways, and last week I discovered that my friends Lissa Alexander, Polly Minick & Laurie Simpson and the good folks at Moda have started the Just One Star program. An opertunity just perfect for quilters! I’m a veteran and a quilter, so Just One Star touched me all the more deeply. And because I love Polly, Laurie and Lissa so much… well that was gravy on top of gravy on top of a pot of gravy. You can read all about Just One Star on Polly and Laurie’s blog here and here, and on Lissa’s blog here.
I am sooooooo crushing on Just One Star. But like a potato chip, one is just impossible.
So I thought I’d make two… one in red and one in blue.
And it just snowballed from there.
I don’t even know how many I’m still working on at this point… but I’m loving every second of it.
I’m thinking of making the entire Minick and Simpson Flag of Valor quilt…
maybe two… and maybe one of them in a Happy Zombiesque red, white and aqua-blue twist (I figure I’m a veteran… I love red, white and aqua - surely I can’t be the only one), and then donating it to the Quilts of Valor Foundation.
