Discover how to make a Quilt of Valor, begin a QOV group in your area, or become a contributing member of QOVF to help fulfill the mission of “covering Military and Veterans touched by war.” QOVF president Sue Reich and QOVF member Ann Holte will share popular quilting techniques such as quilt-as-you-go variations, “Y” seams, new patterns, and the appropriate standards for creating a Quilt of Valor, as well as show many examples of actual quilts. Hear about “QOV: A 50 State Salute,” currently on exhibit and featuring quilts representing 24 states. These quilts will be awarded from the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky in February 2020. Make time to add a patriotic hexagon to a QOV in the making.
