The second Tuesday of every month from 9:30 until 1:30 Quilts of Valor will be in our classroom making quilts.
Quilts must be a minimum of 55"x 65" and be less than the maximum 72"x 90". They must be made with quilt shop quality fabric and they can be of an Americana theme like the quilt above but do NOT have to be. There are some female soldiers, but most soldiers are male so please consider that when making color/fabric selections.
Quilts of Valor will accept donations of money, fabric, sewing, quilting, thread, batting and labor. If you want to help but do not quilt come and help with pressing, organizing, taking photos, cutting, folding etc... there is plenty to do for anyone of any quilting skill level.
The Quilts of Valor website (www.qovf.org/) has a wealth of information and even has some free quilt patterns to choose from.
Anyone is welcome to come and help, you can come once, twice or every month. We are happy to have you and your sewing machine! If you want to work from home and just bring your completed quilt tops or completed quilts that is fine too.
You may include a letter or journal with your quilt if you wish when you donate but this is not required.
As this is a new chapter of QOV we are really in need of fabric donations at this time. Please consider perusing your stash for any quilt shop quality fabrics you are willing to donate. As I said red, white and blue is always welcome but any fabric that isn't juvenile will do. Black and whites are super, outdoor themes, animals, etc... You can bring donations to the Quilters Crossing at any time not just during the QOV meeting.
Thank you so much and hopefully we'll see you tomorrow!
