Quilts of Valor

It is our turn for the February sew-in at MVQG. I will have the block information and pieces cut and samples made at our January sew day.  So we will be ready for you all to help. For Each block will need     2–2 1/2″ white squares, 1-4 1/2 ” white square,  1-9″square focal fabric (patriotic), 2- 9″x 2 1/2″red or blue, 4-11″x 2 1/2″ red or blue, 2 – 15″x 2 1/2″ red or blue. Directions will also be in the February newsletter.

Well I hope this finds that you all had a great Christmas and happy new year. We have had a great year for QOV. We delivered more than we have ever done.  As of today’s date (12/10/19) we have delivered 291 for 2019. We have approximately 10 scheduled for the end of the year and hopefully that will happen.

Nationwide since 2003, we have awarded 240,000 quilts.  We locally, since I started keeping records in 2012, have given 1350. We have nationwide 12,000 volunteers and I have registered 70+ locally. The state reps are amazed at the work we have and will be doing. She wants to attend our award ceremony in the fall next year. So it will be good to see her again. I cannot be more proud of all of you and the work you have done for QOV. A sentiment that has also come from Jan one of our state reps. So here’s to a successful 2020!

from a humble and grateful heart, Terry Austin QC QOV
