What size is a Quilt of Valor?
Generally, a QOV is a lap-size quilt: Recommended size: 60" x 80".
What fabrics are used to make a Quilt of Valor?
Choose fabrics that are high quality, high thread count, 100% cotton, not previously used.
Choose fabric you would want to have in the best quilt you own.
What colors are used to make a Quilt of Valor?
The most popular colors are red, white and blue. Patriotic fabrics are generally loved. However, not all recipients want red, white and blue quilts, so feel free to choose other color palettes as well. About 10% of the recipients are women, but, in general, they do not request ultra-feminine quilts.
How can I get involved???
1. Make a quilt; if you have the ability to do the whole thing, go for it!
2. Make a quilt top and provide backing; you can get it quilted by QOV or Guild members.
3. Donate patriotic fabrics, batting and/or money.
4. Make a block — kit provided at Guild meetings.
We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at the International Quilt Museum (IQM), from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Bring your own project. Also, bring a sack lunch (we can store lunches in the fridge at the IQM).
QOVs are awarded each month at the VA Coffeehaus in the Auld Pavillion Recreation Center (Antelope Park); 3rd Friday of each month from 10:00am to 12:00pm. All are welcome to attend.
