The Sewing House

Join The Sewing House for a Quilts of Valor 100 Block Drive!

We are honored to be a Quilt of Valor® (QOV)registered shop in the Mid-South! A Quilt of Valor (QOV) is a quality, handmade quilt that is machine or hand quilted. It is 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.”

Here is how it works! 

Start creating your blocks for our QOV Block Drive today! Bring your finished blocks to our Grand Opening on June 4th or 5th, and we’ll snap a photo of you with your beautiful donation to QOV. Everyone who brings in a QOV block on opening weekend will receive an American flag enamel pin as a thank you and we’ll add your photo to our Wall of Fame in-store display and Facebook photo album.

The Sewing House QOV Team will make 100 blocks to donate in 100 days!

What – Quilts of Valor Block Drive
When – NOW!!
Start making blocks today!
If you’d like to submit photos early, please email a photo of you with your donated block to info@shopthesewinghouse.com

You may turn your blocks in as you complete them. We’ll keep a tally and post on social media as we work together towards our 100 Block Drive!

Block Making Rules:

  • Blocks can be 8″, 10″ or 12″
  • Fabric must be 100% quality cotton fabrics
  • Patriotic fabrics are best (please stick to Red, White, and Blue toned fabrics)
  • Blocks can be any design suitable for a patriotic quilt – we are partial to stars!
  • Please do not use juvenile fabrics or branded fabrics in the blocks

Important Dates!

We need to reach our 100 block goal by September 30th.
QOV – Quilt Block Assembly Day! Everyone donating blocks is invited to volunteer on Saturday. October 1st to assemble the quilts! We’ll work as a team to turn our blocks into 4 quilt tops.
Volunteers will be invited to join us at the shop as we honor our Veterans with these quilts on Thursday, November 11th, Veterans Day 2021.
