    Below are some of my finished Quilts of Valor. I prefer to do the piecing myself and use a QOVF long-armer for the quilting. I have about 10 (not exaggerating) quilt tops that need backing (each takes about 4 yards), so I'll soon be having a "stash" sale!

    I really like that they aren't all red white and blue. I would think that some soldiers may not want a red white and blue quilt. You have done a lovely job on all of them. What is a QVOF long armer? I am assuming Quilts of Valor Free long armer? A long armer who donates their skill to quilt these?

    I saw a cool smile in the one you mentioned an error in. Do you mean you didn't do that on purpose :D

    THank you for doing these. I know they are well received. My dh has served for 27 years and we have known many who came back wounded. I know these quilts show them that their sacrifices were appreciated.

    Wow, Cat-- great job on all of these! I know they are well received and give lots of comfort to the wounded and also to their families. I love quilting Quilts of Valor. It's the least I can do after all these wounded warriors have given for my freedom.

    Bless you in your work.

    Such beautiful quilts and such a worthwhile cause. Bless you for all you are doing to bring some comfort to our wounded soldiers. I'd like to know, also, about the QOV long-arm quilter. Can you give us more info? Thanks.

    Go on the Quilts of Valor site www.qovf.org and look for the info. They can often team you with a longarmer.

    They are beautiful. How nice to give of your self for a great cause. Two ladies and I made one together. Now two of the ladies meet every week to make quilts for Valor. They are averaging 1 1/2 per week. Even have a handi quilter to do the quilting. Great Job

    I'm afraid I can't remember the name. I'll take a look for the pattern, though.
