Quilt of Valor Presentations

I hope you all enjoyed the QOV Mystery Quilt that has been going on for the past few Wednesdays!!

Just so you didn't think we were neglecting our veterans while we were stitching ;-)

Presentation Photos!!

First up!
Two quilts that the Local School made
The High School FBLA ( Future Business Leaders of America)
choose a community service project each year
My son took Quilts of Valor to them - and ta-da
Here are two of the Quilts they  made - and they presented them to Veterans ( and teachers) in our school.  It was pretty neat!

The guys!
Combat Veterans
We surprised them, but they were so cool!
My son did the presentation and he was walking on air
and laughed - as they all wanted to be as tall as him

Women Veterans
We work with an amazing group of Women Combat Vets

And my Guys!
I love this group of Veterans
they are so sweet, and so excited to receive a Quilt
The ohh and ahh over the fabrics
We love them!

While I LOVE making these quilts
I love the LOVE we wrap our Veterans even better

Your pictures and remarks hit the spot as always. I especially like your remark at the end of this blog....there is so much joy in making the Quilts of Valor and knowing our veterans get hugs and thanks from them!

Nice job, Alycia and all of her quilting elves! It's wonderful that you've honored the veterans in your community and awarded them Quilts of Valor. Keep up the good work.

Way to go, Lil' Bit!! How wonderful that the FBLA quilts went to veterans who are now teachers. That is AWESOME!!

Love these! I have one more row and borders to put on the quilt top I am donating to my local Comstock Lode Quilters who presented a QoV to my dad on December 31 - when we celebrated our Christmas! He sleeps under that quilt every night!

Wonderful presentation photos. I'm waiting to hear back from an organization our guild is partnering with, to find out when and where our first guild QOV will be presented.
