Quilts of Valor's mission

A Quilt of Valor is a wartime quilt made to honor our War Wounded. It is a tangible way to say: "Thank you for your service, sacrifce and valor" for our country"

Quilts of Valor's mission is to cover all our war wounded (all those who have stood in harm's way) with quilts of valor.

Catherine Roberts, the founder of Quilts of Valor, recently let us know that "more than 1,200 troops will be returning this June and our challenge is to get 1,200 quilts to camp LeJeune for these warriors. If these men and women can brave the conditions of Afghanistan, then we can rise to the occasion of getting a few quilts for them!"

Connecting Threads is helping by donating 50 yards of American Heritage fabric to Quilts of Valor for backing, and donating 11 quilts that our staff has sewn. We'd love to hear what you're doing or what you've done to support this worthy cause.

Kathy google americana fabric panels to see what the different sites have. Connecting Threads has Americana fabric as I have ordered from them.  I also just use Red White and blue fabric. Sometimes you can find it with stars on it too. I have a picture of a QOV quilt that I made on my page. I just use up scraps of what I have. I will post a picture of my latest one when I get it together in the next couple of days. I hope that this helps you.
