2-QUILTS OF VALOR

The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL those service members and veterans touched by war with Wartime Quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVs).This foundation is not about politics. It’s about people. The Red Rose Quilters Guild is proud to be a part of this foundation and actively participates in making many Quilts of Valor for our wounded soldiers.

Donations from the public are always welcome. Thank You!

You need not be a member of the Guild to participate

You are welcome to join or make blocks at home and drop them off at one of our Guild Meetings. QOV meetings will now be at Sue Long’s home. For more information, please see our newsletter or e-mail Kim at redrosequilters@gmail.com. Thank You.

3- Charity Quilts

Use your own fabric or ask Beckie if she has any pattern packages at the Guild meeting.

Use any pattern of your choosing. Fabric should be all cotton.
The quilts should measure between 42″ to 45″.

2010 we made and distributed 187 quilts of comfort.

This past February, we have distributed quilts to: Milagro House, Domestic Violence Services, *Transitional Living Center,  and BIRD-Beginning In The Right Direction.

*The Transitional Living Center would also appreciate some Red, White and Blue Quilts for veterans who come to the Center.

*************************

We are also making quilts for Alzheimer’s patients. These quilts will go to AseraCare Hospice.

In January 2009 we donated 43 quilts to Ascera Care Hospice

For these quilts use multi-textured fabrics; quilt should measure 36″ square.

Fabrics of Texture:
A blend of corduroy, velveteen, polyester, satin, vinyl or leather. Cut in 6″ squares or 9″.  Patients find comfort in running their hands over the feel of the various fabrics.

Use a zigzag stitch to attach the squares together.

When you have the top complete – layer – batting and backing. Any fabric for the backing will do.

THANK YOU
