Join our Quilt of Valor® (QOV) outreach!
We are honored to be a Quilt of Valor® (QOV) registered shop! A Quilt of Valor is a quality, handmade quilt awarded to a Service Member or a Veteran who has been touched by war. The quilt says unequivocally, "Thank you for your service and sacrifice in serving our nation."
To nominate a recipient:
Our QOV outreach began in 2021 when we awarded 14 quilts to Mid-South Veterans. Our QOV efforts have continued and we are again collecting donated quilt blocks, quilt tops, and completed quilts. We have a group called The Sewing House Quilts of Valor Volunteers on Facebook and always welcome new members! Donations are accepted year-round!
Block Making Rules
1. Blocks can be 8 1/2", 10 1/2" or 12 1/2"
