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.

Another QOV - I only had small amounts of each of the fabrics so I had to find a way to maximize them. The points of the stars are made from some cool fabric I found at JoAnn's - it has the names and shapes of all the states.

Hi Kathy!  Thanks for the compliment.  Yes, it is something I came up with in my ongoing effort to use up my stash (HA!).  I am also making this same design in a Quilts for Kids.

Will be posting more soon! :)

One of my latest Quilts of Valor - and another attempt to use up my tons of scraps (no dent in the stash yet!).

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!
