The quilts are lovingly handmade and awarded to veterans all over the world. The original idea came to the founder, Catherine Roberts, in a dream while her son was deployed in Iraq in 2003. Since that time, more than 269,505 Quilts of Valor have been awarded to service members and veterans touched by war. This presentation involves a description of the project, requirements for a QOV, and the nomination process for deserving veterans and service members. I have been a member of the Anderson Quilts of Valor group since I retired and have made and awarded 11 QOVs and am working on three others, mostly for Vietnam veterans. I will be sharing photos of quilts I’ve made, the process I use to design each one, and some hints about quilting in general.
