Quilts of Valor

Carol Olsen
Carol Olson, Region 2 Coordinator - WA

The motifs are all made with an embroidery machine!
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

Carol came to my guild and talked about QOV. She shared her story. Among other things I learned that they have donated 120,696 quilts to vets from all wars.

After raiding my stash for red, white and blue fabric, I learned from Carol that donated quilts do NOT need to be red, white and blue. ANY COLOR is okay. Just remember to make masculine quilts. Read the basic requirements to learn more.

Let's make quilts!
My donation.
