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.

Carolyn, I sure wish I was in your place...when I moved from NC, ..I lost all my scraps from storage...ruined from the weather and critters, so I am starting all over again...which is OK, because I have very little room in the Nest ( our new apt.)..but I miss the freedom it gives you to create!..you are a great example of that!!..you have the gift to create!..you will go far!, my friend!

Thanks, Majorie!  It was a good stash buster - although I still have a ton of scraps left!

My "bits and pieces" Quilt of Valor is finished!  The blocks were made by sewing lots of small and irregular size fabric pieces together then sizing to six and a half inch blocks.  Sashing is two inches wide.  This is also the first time I have set blocks on point.  Good way to use up those odd shaped pieces I just couldn't throw away!  I kept the same theme going with the binding, using a variety of leftover strips.

Barbara - you are welcome.  I have so many boxes of scraps, I am always trying to find ways to use them up!

Carolyn that is a beautiful QOV!! Thanks for sharing the info on how you made it. Our group has boxes of scraps to use up.

Marjorie - you are welcome!  I will take a close-up photo of the stitching the longarmer did on the white fabric within the panel.  It looks like bubbles or cobblestones, and it made the letters puff up a bit.  She also did some beautiful stitching on the corner star blocks.
