Moda fabrics is proud to be participating in a Quilts of Valor program co-ordinated by Marianne Fons. Moda's very own Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson have created a line of fabrics and kits benefiting this program available in stores April 2011. Invite someone you know that may not quilt to get involved.
Note from QOVF website: Just how much of an impact has the Quilts of Valor Foundation made? As of February, 2011 there have been over 37,000 quilts awarded to service members/veterans! So this project inspired us to take it a step further.
We invite you to join the Moda staff and designers in our newest Challenge…
The challenge is to piece, quilt and bind 100 quilts in 100 days using the Flag of Valor pattern by Minick and Simpson. The deadline for star blocks is May 1, 2011 so that we can meet our quilt deadline by Flag Day, June 14, 2011.
Then we can truly say....the hands of a grateful nation comfort our soldiers! We will coordinate the donation of the 100 quilts thru the Semper Fi Fund, a cause that is near and dear to designers, Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson.
Thank you for your help!
Send untrimmed blocks to:
