Quilts of Valor

As quilters we know that part of the joy of making quilts is giving one away.  Quilts of Valor (QOV) foundation provides a way to be patriotic and donate a quilt to a veteran. The QOV website states that:

"The mission of Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover 
ALL combat servicemembers and veterans 
touched by war with comforting and 
healing Quilts of Valor.  
This foundation is not about politics.  
It's about people."  

Kristy & Josh
My nephew, Josh, is one of those people. He recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. His wife, Kristy, sent him off just a few months after they were married. He is the youngest veteran in our family and joins my husband, my father, and my father in law. I was excited to design fabric and a quilt that could be donated to QOV or given as a gift.  

If you are interested in making a quilt for a veteran or to donate to the Quilts of Valor program, take a look at Patriot Dream Fabric and Project Book. This kit provides all the tools and instructions you need to piece and quilt, creating a beautiful patriotic throw.
