Just One Star (can comfort a soldier)

Moda fabrics is participating in a program called Just One Star in conjuction with Quilts of Valor.  The goal is to have quilters make the star block shown above and send them in to be made into quilts for soldiers.  They are looking to get 1800 blocks in order to make 100 quilts.  You can read about it on Moda's blog here.  They have all of the infomormation and links on their site, but if you want to jump right to the pattern file, you can go here.  They need to be either medium blue or red for the star, and a light fabric for the background.  It doesn't take very long at all to make one, and the result is oversized, which they will trim down later.  The finished quilts will look like the picture below (borrowed from their website):

It's a quick block to make, so let's all make one and send it in!  I think I'll make a red one and send it along with the blue one above.  And I'll reduce my stash by a very tiny bit as well!!
