Twenty-eight Quiltsy members joined in and sent their blocks. Most had so much fun creating, they made and sent multiple blocks. Each block was signed with the creator's name and town so the recipients would feel the love from all over.
Participating Quiltsy Team members in the block donation project were: stashthis, rooee, Pamelaquilts, PeppersAttic, Springwaterdesigns, NannyGrans, handmadebyGiovanna, UniquelyNancy, Serenstitches, crazywickedstitch, ClubAloha, SallyManke, HeatherLairDesign, brenniequilts, DebiDesigns, KelSay, MoranartandQuilts, MooseCarolQuilts, fabricartist21, ladylikedesigns, anotherghostquilts, SuzyQquilts, susiquilts, atthebrightspot, ThreeCat, MurphysHouse, onesheeptwosheep, and whimbrella.
Quiltsy Team member Ebony of LovebugStudios wrote about her experience quilting one of the 100 quilts. Read about it in her blog.
We all know quilters are generous. Moda knew this, though they might not have realized HOW generous. Instead of 1800 star blocks, they received over 12,000 star blocks -- instead of 100 quilts, they have enough stars for 1,000 quilts. Isn't that awesome?
Quiltsy is starting a list of member quilters who are willing to help Moda finish up some of the remaining 900 quilts.
Dawn, of SpringWaterDesigns took her enthusiasm from this experience and designed a new patriotic quilt pattern that meets the specifications for Quilt of Valor donation quilts.
