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.

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

This pattern is called "Field of Stars" - I saw it in a magazine and just had to make it!  It's one of my favorites.  When completed, it will be donated to Quilts of Valor.

I like your quilt.

My latest QOV - a sampler using red, white and blue star fabrics (plus the white tone on tone star print).  It's ready to go off to the longarmer.

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!).
