Quilts of Valor

QUILTS OF VALOR (QoV)

Quilts of Valor groups have been stitching quilts with love, prayers and healing thoughts since 2003 when Catherine Roberts founded the Quilts of Valor Foundation (www.qovf.org). Our mission is to honor veterans who have been touched by war with a carefully made, pieced and quilted Quilt of Valor. It says "Thank you for serving your nation through your service and sacrifice.” MMQG QoV quilters serve veterans within the 5 counties in western NC (Cherokee and Clay Counties) and northern GA (Fannin, Union, and Towns Counties). The Quilts of Valor Outreach group of MMQG meets the FIRST THURSDAY and the THIRD WEDNESDAY of every month at the Coosa United Methodist Church in Blairsville, GA, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We have many tasks all levels of quilters can assist with in the quiltmaking process – making blocks, pressing blocks, cutting batting and backings, etc. Join us! 



Requesting a Quilt of Valor is very easy.  Here's how:

1.  Go to the web page for the Quilts of Valor Foundation – www.qovf.org, and click on the RED BUTTON link near the top center of the page that says “Take Action."  That opens a drop-down box.

2.  In the drop-down box, scroll to the link that says “Request a Quilt of Valor."  Click on that, and begin to enter the information that we’ll need to process the request for an award. Information we need includes you as contact person -- name, phone, email, and also asks for information about the veteran – name, address, branch of service, country or war where the veteran was deployed to a combat zone, whether they had received a quilt before or not. You can also write in any comments you would like to make, such as which awards or medals the veteran received while serving, length of total military service, etc. The request goes to the national web page, and is sent to the QoV group closest to where the veteran lives

Thank you for nominating our honored veterans for a Quilt of Valor!
