Ladies, here's a link for you to go to for the Just One Star challenge. Just click here and it will take you there. You can print out your directions and make one up. You saw these the other night at the meeting. I think Anna is taking these up if you want to bring your finished star to the next meeting.
Another drop off point is also Thomas Sewing Center in Mesquite. You can drop your star off there and they will send it into Moda for you....
Remember, there is a cut off time for this. They want all the stars into them by May 1st. They are trying to make at least 100 quilts by Flag Day, which is June 14th.
Here's the stars that were turned in at the March meeting...
