Quilts of Valor

Here are some of the ladies from the Q-T's quilting group showing some of the quilts we made for the Quilts of Valor Project. At one of our monthly meetings we brought our machines and fabrics and worked as a team to create our blocks. Other volunteers did the sashings, machine quilting and bindings. The next month we gathered for this photo.

The national project collects quilts for wounded veterans. According to the Quilts of Valor Foundation Web site, the project was started in 2003 by Catherine Roberts of Seaford, Del.Her son, a member of the 630th MP Company, was being deployed to Iraq. Roberts asked quilters to donate fabric, their skills and time to make quilts to comfort America's wounded soldiers. To date, the project has delivered more than 15,000 quilts to wounded veterans across the United States.
