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.
The Oconomowoc Quilters Guild has been involved in making Quilts of Valor since 2009.
The national Quilts of Valor website http://www.qovf.org/ lists the basic requirements, has free patterns, information on the program and has lots of great information! If you know someone who deserves a Quilt of Valor, here are the requirements:
- The recipient must have actually served in a war.
- You must talk to the recipient (or family member) to make sure that they would like to receive a quilt.
Please limit your requests (to the guild) to two soldiers. If you know of more than two individuals that you would like to see receive quilts, please either submit their name to the Quilt of Valor Coordinator or call up some friends/guild members and get sewing! If you present a Quilt of Valor that does not go through the guild- please go to http://forms.qovf.org/ and enter the recipients information so that they get on the national register for having received a quilt.
In 2019, our guild participated in a QOV panel challenge - click HERE to see the beautiful quilts that were created and are now available for distribution to service members and veterans!
