made with love

Sew Katie Jean was recently involved with Moda to sew together a quilt made with star blocks.  Each block was signed by the person who made it and their state.   They came from all over America, sent to Moda, and then packaged with instructions for our shop.

This is the finished quilt.  My mom, Donna Coughlin sewed these blocks together with her little black Singer feather weight.  It was her first quilt.  Cindy Lloyd did the quilting with her long arm.  She used variegated red, white, blue thread on top, and white thread on the bottom of the quilt.  Both sides are equally striking with a quilted star motif.  And Arlene Irby did the quilt binding.  She chose a beautiful solid red color and hand stitched the binding onto the quilt back.

Thank you ladies for donating all of your talents and making this project possible.  This quilt is truly made with love, to honor all those who serve.
