Quilts of Valor® II reunites national quilting celebrities Alex Anderson, Mark Lipinski, and host Marianne Fons from the original Quilts of Valor film to work on one magnificent new Quilt of Valor. As they sew, the quilting gurus share quiltmaking tips with viewers and speak from the heart about what being involved in making quilts for veterans has come to mean to them. The program also features stories from Nebraska, California, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C., introducing viewers to the people who make Quilts of Valor and the people who receive them. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.

Attend this free lecture to learn about the Quilts of Valor Foundation® and how you can award members of your family or community with a Quilt of Valor (QOV) to thank them for their service. 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 along with many examples of actual quilts. Hear about “QOV: A 50 State Salute” currently on exhibit 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. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
