Quilts of Valor

The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a grass roots organization whose mission is to award healing Quilts of Valor to veterans and military personnel. The organization was first started in 2003 by Catherine Roberts of Delaware when she made and awarded a quilt to a recovering soldier in the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Since that time, over 159,000 quilts have been awarded to veterans and military personnel.

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, Space Coast Quilts of Valor awarded 6 quilts to veterans who have been nominated for a quilt by friends and family.

If you know of a deserving veteran who would like to be awarded with a quilt (ask first as not all veterans want a quilt) or would like to donate financially to this cause, go to http://www.qovf.org – and designate “Space Coast QOV” as the recipient.

The Space Coast QOV sewing group meets monthly at Quilts & Lace in the Suntree area of Melbourne, on the 4th Thursday of each month, from 5pm to 6pm. If you would like to work on a Quilt of Valor, please come out and join the team. They will happily accept completed blocks and/or quilts based on the patterns below. The ideal finished size is 60″x80″ ( minimum 55″x65″ – maximum 72″x90″). For more information visit their website. http://qovf.org

Follow each of the links to get patterns for the various QOV blocks.
