Quilt of Valor for Husband
The Quilts of Valor Coordinator for Texas came to our guild about two years ago and did a presentation of the program and demonstrated how a QoV is draped on a soldier. So our guild made ten QoVs to give to ten local qualified Veterans. Since my husband was one of the chosen recipients, I decided that he would probably appreciate the quilt more if it came from me rather than a stranger, so I made this one and he has no idea. The Texas Coordinator will come to our event on July 11 and will present all of the QoVs in a special ceremony. We have invited the mayor, city council, county commissioners, county judge, as well as a few state politicians. I found the pattern for this quilt in Fons and Porter "Love of Quilting" issue from September/October 2012.
