    Hi All!

    Kudos to everyone who pieces and long-arms Quilts of Valor for our service members.

    Let's remember -- They are not charity quilts. These quilts are to recognize service to our country and acknowledge the sacrifices of our service people. As a quilter and citizen, I am honored to use my best fabrics and skills for these quilts.

    Amen! I agree wholeheartedly! It's not only an honor....it's a privilege!

    I do QOV quilts myself. I piece and longarm. I make sure that somewhere on the quilt is the month and year of the quilt. I also quilt in a block "Thank you for your sacrifice." But I do not put my name on them anywhere.

    I don't make QoV quilts but I donate money for supplies to several I know who does make them and they make them extra nice.
