As of June 2017 over 159,000 quilts have been awarded to our deserving warriors.

Pictured below in the slideshows are some of the 624 QoV's I have quilted.  

There are about 50 pictures in each show so sit back and enjoy!

(most of these pictures were taken before the bindings were put on so you will see some unfinished edges)

Quilts of Valor Foundation Mission Statement
           
"The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war
with a comforting and healing Quilt of Valor."
I am proud to say that I am a volunteer longarmer and group leader for the Quilts of Valor Foundation.  The Foundation is a national non-profit organization founded in 2003 and is operated in accordance with section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  The founder, Catherine Roberts, had the idea of comforting veterans and those currently in the military with quilts.  Since then, QOVF has become a nationwide grassroots community service effort, connecting the home front with our combat warriors, veterans of all armed conflicts, and others who were touched in some way by war.  Freedom is not free. The cost of our freedom is the dedication of men and women who serve in our military and a Quilt of Valor is awarded as a "thank you for your service" and to remind the recipient that they are forever in our thoughts and hearts.
            
Throughout the US there are over 250 volunteer quilting groups registered with the Foundation and I am honored to be the leader of one of them.  Our group, Quilts of Valor Mira Mesa, has 23 members and we get together twice a month to work on our quilts, chat, share stories about our familes and just generally have fun.  To see more information about our group, please check out the QOVMM page listed on the left.
