Quilts of Valor~ Patriotic Piecers

Quilts of Valor 

3rd Saturday of every month

9:30am - 12:30pm

Join us each month to create a Quilt of Valor for our veterans. Wouldn't it be great if we could wrap every veteran? 

Each month we will gather together to sew quilt blocks, create kits, prepare quilts for longarming, binding, attaching labels, etc.

QOV Requirements:

Fabric used for a Quilt of Valor should be quality, 100% cotton fabric appropriate for adults.

A Quilt of Valor does not have to be red, white and blue, but patriotic colors are very popular with recipients. 

Patterns and blocks can be of any design suitable for a patriotic theme. 

Avoid juvenile, gender or branch specific fabrics, unless the recipient is known to you.

The recommended size of a Quilt of Valor is 60″ x 80″; it must be a minimum of 55″ x 65″ and maximum of 72″ x 90.

The Quilt consists of a top, batting, and backing.  It must be machine or hand quilted. A tied quilt is not acceptable for a Quilt of Valor.

Backings provided to The LongArmy Volunteer must be 8″ wider in width and 8″ longer in length.

QOVF Members in good standing may request quilting of their tops by a LongArmy Volunteer, free of charge.

Use quality, low loft batting such as cotton, cotton blends, polyester or polyester blends.  Quilting should be appropriate for the quilt and not overly dense, which can reduce the loft of the quilt.

Double fold, also known as French Fold, binding is recommended for durability. Hand stitch or neatly machine stitch binding.

A Quilt of Valor must be labeled as such, and include the name of the veteran or service member.  

Attendees please bring your sewing machine, quilting/sewing supplies, fabric, etc. 

If you'd like to donate Quilt of Valor fabric / items (batting, backing, binding, etc.), we will gladly except them and make sure all items are used in a way to support our veterans and the Quilts of Valor Foundation.
