The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

Just One Star Can Comfort a Soldier

Moda has issued  a challenge - they need 1800 star blocks to reach their goal of making 100 quilts in 100 days.
If everyone sends in one star for the Flag of Valor quilt by Minnick and Simpson (you could also send two stars) using a medium red or blue with a cream background we can help them reach that goal.
This is the website to get the information and download the pattern.  You have until May 1st.

Moda Designers, Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson have created fabrics and kits benefiting this program and the kits will be available in some quilt stores April, 2011, just in case you want to make a whole quilt.  I made two blocks  to help with the goal of 100 quilts. We all do what we can, and can you help them make their goal?.

What better way to honor our men and women in the service of our country ..." the hands of a grateful nation comfort our soldiers." Let them know we have not forgotten and are proud of their commitment to our America.  Thanks to Pat Taylor for bringing this to my attention.  She knows everything. LoL 

I am still working on Criss Cross Applesauce and up to 125 blocks now. Will be gifted to my dear friend Beverly Almond.

Really think that I will make two quilts. I already have one on the table cut and ready to pick up and sew and will be 81 blocks set 9 x 9 and 63" square.  Perfect size for a table topper.

Happy sewing and Judy C sends you peaceful thoughts today.
